5.4. Hotel Accessability Survey
United Spinal Association recruiting hotel accessibility survey participants:
A research team led by Dr. Shu Cole at Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington is looking for individuals living with spinal cord injury (SCI) or their caregivers to participate in an online survey that evaluates whether accessibility information provided by hotels are meeting the needs of people with SCI. Results of the study will help commercial lodging facilities provide better accessibility information about their properties to guests with SCI. A $30 gift card (Amazon or Visa) will be sent to those who complete the survey. A paper survey can be sent to participants upon request.
Participants must be 18 years or older. No past hotel/motel experience is necessary. The survey takes about 20-30 minutes. Potential participants with SCI or their caregivers should contact the research team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 812-855-9037 for a link to the survey or a copy of the printed survey.
Participation in the survey is completely voluntary and can withdraw at any time. Information solicited from this survey will be confidential, and data collected will be aggregated for analysis so that no individual responses can be identified. This project is funded by the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation.
