Understanding the Effects of Public Health Outbreak Control Policies and Implementation on Individuals and Communities: A path to improving COVID-19 Policy Effectiveness

We are looking for:

Policy makers and implementers; health care workers in acute care settings, frontline public health, and long-term care settings.

The study involves:

A 45-60 minute interview by telephone or zoom involving questions about your experiences, perspectives and views on the impact of the COVID-19 public health policies

Why we are doing the study:

Various public health measures and policies have been implemented since January 2020 to control the spread of COVID-19 and prevent further global impact of the pandemic. 

Researchers at the VEC, in collaboration with researchers and health care providers across Canada, China and Bangladesh would like to understand the impact of these policies on individuals and communities.

We will be interviewing policy makers, health care providers, people who live in communal settings such as shelters, social service providers and members of the media.  We are seeking the experiences, perspectives and views of a range of people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health measures.
