The University of Saskatchewan is conducting a study to understand the impact of caring for a family member in a Canadian Intensive Care Unit (ICU) during COVD-19 visitor restrictions.
The study will investigate the overall effects of not being able to be near loved ones during their stay in the ICU during the coronavirus pandemic. Researchers hope to use the outcomes to explore potential solutions for any barriers resulting from visitor restrictions. They also hope the findings will be able to apprise ways for healthcare providers and patient family members to better support each other for optimal patient-family centred care.
Participants are invited to participate in the study by either completing a short 10 minute survey online or participating in an interview only. The survey is completely anonymous, and is available to all patient family members who had a family member in a Canadian ICU during the COVID-19 visitor restrictions. You should not participate in the study if you lost a loved one in ICU within the past 3 months, or if your family member is currently in ICU.
