dc.description.abstract The need to utilize research in decision making is considered critical in the present health care environment. For health research to be applied, it must have value. However, the question of the value of research has not been fully explored in the literature. The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding of occupational therapists’ perceptions of the value of research. Semi-structured interviews were completed in Winnipeg, Manitoba with 10 occupational therapists. The four themes in the study influencing their perceptions of the value of research were their experiences with research, the purpose of research, the resources to support research and the clinician and researcher culture. A number of elements were identified which may have informed the occupational therapists’ perceptions of the value of research. Having an understanding of the elements that may influence the perceptions of the value of research may assist with developing effective research utilization programs. en
