OTD Capstone Projects

Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this project was to develop a research design for the Special Needs Mobility Program at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt Rehabilitation Services One Hundred Oaks (MCJCHV).

Outcomes: A research design was developed that could be carried out by the Special Needs Mobility Program, concerning the transportation of children with special healthcare needs. After a written review of the related literature was completed and the research design was developed, all paperwork associated with submission to the International Review Board for Vanderbilt was completed, which included surveys that were designed as outcome measures for the research. Finally, a handout was created to inform caregivers of children serviced by the clinic about the clinic processes and how to care and maintain their specialized transportation device.
