We want to understand your experience as a patient or family member in a Canadian ICU during the COVID-19 visitor restrictions to fully explore solutions and ways that health care providers, patients and patient families can better support each other to ensure patient-family centered care.

Family members can participate in an interview and/or survey. You can read more information in the survey invitation/consent letter here.

Patients can participate in an interview. Your participation is voluntary and involves an interview with a research assistant over phone, video chat, or email that should take less than an hour of your time. You will have an opportunity to review your responses prior to inclusion in the study and all responses will be anonymized.

If you are interested in participating in our study or would like more information please contact our research assistant Faith Bae, RN at: or (306)966-2583 or leave your contact information here to have someone from the study team follow up with you.

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
