Understanding parents’ experiences and information needs when caring for a child who tests positive for COVID-19
University of Alberta
This study aims to understand parents’ experiences and information needs when a child tests positive for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and to develop parental educational resources that use art and digital platforms. These resources will incorporate the use of stories to communicate information around COVID-19. Using this approach to deliver information to parents and caregivers, we hope to reduce uncertainty and improve knowledge around illness itself and what families and children can expect.
This is a participant opportunity and will involve one 30 to 60-minute semi-structured interview. Participants will receive a $25 electronic gift card.
