Call for Research Participation
We are seeking home care clinicians (physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, skilled nurses, aides, and social workers) who work in Medicare Certified agencies across the U.S. to participate in a research study. The purposes of this research study are to describe home care providers experiences caring for patients throughout the pandemic, barriers and facilitators to the provision of care, and lessons learned applicable to future practice during health crisis.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older, be able to read and speak English, have 2 years of experience in home care, and worked during the pandemic during the time between February 2020 and present day. Data will be collected through interviews (via Zoom® or phone) that will last approximately one hour and data will be kept confidential. Participation in this study is voluntary. Participants will be compensated with a $10 gift card for their time.
