NPW Survey; The Northern Pediatric Wellness (NPW) Survey

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Healthcare Delivery & Policy

The project will involve conducting virtual surveys of caregivers in the Northern Health Authority region with children 19 years of age and under living with them about how various aspects of child wellness have changed due to COVID-19 physical distancing measures. We will survey various child wellness aspects including diet, exercise, sleep hygiene, home safety, mental wellness, and screen time. The purpose of the project is to identify how the physical distancing measures have impacted children's lives. This could allow for identification of specific areas of child wellness and further appropriate resource allocation and advocacy efforts.
