This is a *repeat email* from 3/23/2021. I am planning to conclude my
research participation recruitment from OandP List by the end of day*
today, 4/19/2021*, but wanted to make sure everyone who wished to
participate has previously replied to this email. If you did not previously
inquire interest to my email address below, [email protected],
please take time to do so today. Please see below for more details if you

Hello forum members:

Key terms: O&P, Spanish, research participant recruitment, bilingual
communication tool

My name is Alesha Heacock, and I am a student at the University of Hartford
completing a Master of Science Degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics with
undergraduate minors in Spanish and Psychology from the same university. I
am conducting an IRB approved research investigation in efforts to enhance
bilingual clinical-specific communication efficiency between clinicians and
patients in our field.

I am seeking your assistance as an experienced clinician to read and make
suggestions to a piloted English-only version of the resource through a
survey. If this topic interests you, please reply if you are a *currently
practicing or recently retired (within the last 5 years) ABC or BOC
certified CP, CO, CPO, or CPed who would declare their primary language to
be English*. Please kindly refrain from participating if you are board
eligible, a resident, MSPO student, or technician.

There are no foreseeable risks to your participation. Although no direct
compensation will be delivered immediately, your aggregated feedback will
play a key role in the development of a bilingual resource, aiding in
breaking down Spanish language barriers in our field. I intend for this
resource to become open access to both clinician and patient ends in the
near future. With your permission at the conclusion of your participation,
I will keep your contact information should this become feasible as an open
access resource tool to hopefully extend this as gratuity. Your responses
will be unidentifiable, and your participation will be considered private
from your employer/company as an independent party.

Please respond at your earliest convenience with your willingness to
participate and I will respond with an informed consent document containing
further details. I plan to close the participation interest window by
*4/19/2021*. If you have any further questions, my contact information is
below. Thank you for your time.
