One High Risk Site Policy - Long Term Carehomes

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

To stop the spread of COVID-19 in LTC, the Public Health Agency of Canada instituted a number of evidence-based rapid redesign and resource redeployment practices. We focus on the "one high risk site" staffing policy, prohibiting LTC staff from employment in more than one facility. Guided by the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research, we will conduct a one-year exploratory study using mixed methods including survey, focus groups, interviews (with executive leadership teams, staff, residents and their families) and monthly administrative data. We will describe "one high risk site" policy implementation at three LTC partner sites.
