My name is Amanda Peirano. I am a Doctorate of Health Administration
candidate at the University of Phoenix On-line. I currently work at Mount
Carmel Medical Center and worked for many years at Orthopaedic Trauma and
Reconstructive Surgery (OTRS). I am conducting research designed to describe
the use of spirituality among individuals with limb amputation and to
determine how spirituality relates to quality of life. The survey takes on
average about 20-30 minutes to complete. You do not have to be spiritual to
participate. As you know amputation is a life changing experience. My hope
is that by getting individuals with amputations to complete my survey it
will help me build an understanding of the effect of spirituality on
adaptation to amputation. Treating the mind, body, and spirit in patients is
important to the physical and psychological adjustment to an injury or
illness. Acknowledgement of spiritual coping among patients may further its
use and ultimately assist individuals with limb amputation in experiencing a
more satisfying life.
If you are interested in receiving a survey please contact me via email at
Amandap11 at email.phoenix.edu or apeirano at mchs.com or call me at
614-394-2662. I have Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval through
University of Phoenix as well as the Grant Medical Center/Doctors
Hospital. You may contact Julie Walsh at the Grant Medical Center/Doctors
Hospital IRB to verify the legitimacy of the research. The main number to
the hospital is 614-566-9000. Julie's number is 614-566-9346.
