OBJECTIVE: To provide understanding of practices and attitudes toward tele-neuropsychology (teleNP) among Veterans Health Administration (VA) psychologists who have joined a related community of practice.
METHODS: Several VA psychologists (the authors) developed this survey to better understand dissemination of teleNP and attitudes toward teleNP among those involved in a VA teleNP community of practice. We contacted VA psychologists within this group to complete the survey. The survey was open from July to August 2021, during which time a total of 62 VA psychologists participated.
RESULTS: Response rate was estimated to be 41% of those receiving the survey (62 respondents). Approximately two thirds of those completing the survey reported current practice of teleNP (68%; n = 42). In contrast, only 25% of the entire sample (n = 15) conducted any teleNP pre-pandemic. Job satisfaction related to being able to perform teleNP is high. Support for continued and increased use of teleNP is high, with most respondents (84%) indicating they will be at least somewhat likely to practice teleNP post-pandemic.
CONCLUSIONS: The survey provides increased support for the use of teleNP by VA psychologists who responded to the survey, with significantly increased adoption since the Covid-19 pandemic, and greater likelihood of intention to use teleNP post pandemic.
