My name is Regan Dearborn. I am a masters student writing my graduate thesis under the direction of my advisor Dr. Kendra Nixon (Faculty of Social Work at the University of Manitoba). I am contacting you to request your assistance with a research project I am working on as part of my master’s thesis. The title of the research is “Women Healthcare Workers, Compassion Fatigue, and the COVID-19 Pandemic” which is a study being conducted across Ontario focusing specifically on women in healthcare.
We are interested in learning about service provider's experiences providing support services within the context of COVID-19. You will see from the survey, there are a few inclusionary criteria questions at the beginning which clarifies how this study will be defining women, the times they would have needed to be working during the pandemic, as well as that they must be a resident and working in Ontario.
The study includes a survey of healthcare workers in Ontario (who are over the age of 18 years as of as of date completing the survey). The survey includes questions related to background/demographic information, professional and personal experiences in being a health care worker in the context of COVID-19, and suggestions for ways to improve the working conditions and support healthcare workers. The survey will take approximately 15 - 20 minutes to complete and the results will be kept strictly confidential. This research has been approved by the Research Ethics Board at the University of Manitoba.
