New data sets at the RDC: 

Impacts of COVID-19 on Health Care Workers: Infection Prevention and Control (ICHCWIPC)

The purpose of the ICHCWIPC crowdsource collection was to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on health care workers in Canada. This questionnaire covers job type and setting, training and information on PPE and IPC practices and protocols, use and access to PPE, and personal health. It also includes general demographic questions. Health care workers and those working in a health care setting living in the ten provinces and three territories were eligible to participate. Included in this population are those who provide health care services directly to individuals (e.g. physicians, nurses, massage therapists, dentists, dietitians), provide technical support to medical staff (e.g. receptionists, technicians), or who provide support services in a health care setting (e.g. cleaning and food services staff, security).

More information on this survey can be found HERE.
