Western Sydney University researchers look for input into survey on ‘disability in aquatic settings’
June 11, 2024

Researchers at Western Sydney University are conducting a study on the experiences of supporting people with disability in aquatic settings.

If you are a professional who works in an aquatics setting, they would appreciate you participating in the survey.

Western Sydney University researchers are looking to hear about how you support people with disability in aquatic settings as part of your work, the types of interventions you use and how ready and supported you feel. 

This study has been approved by Western Sydney University (approval No: H16010)

You can complete their survey at https://surveyswesternsydney.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3IPEZ7p1buAb0Nw
