Call for Study Participants: Frontline Healthcare Providers who have cared for dying patients during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Researchers at the University of Manitoba are conducting a national research study on the experiences of frontline healthcare providers who have cared for dying patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, this study will explore those experiences, as well as some of the long-term effects that frontline healthcare providers may experience due to the pandemic. This program of research is being led by Principle Investigator Dr. Harvey Max Chochinov - Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Manitoba, Senior Scientist at the Research Institute of Oncology and Hematology, CancerCare Manitoba, and Co-Founder of the Canadian Virtual Hospice.  
 
Interested participants will be asked to complete a brief survey over a period of 3 time-points, and if willing, take part in a brief phone call interview. If you are interested, please click on the link to consent. We anticipate that this survey will take 15 minutes of your time. Information to help you decide whether to voluntarily consent will be available at the beginning of the survey.
