SURVEY: Understanding COVID-19 in home-based care practices

Survey request

HCCI is sharing this request on behalf of our colleagues Drs. Christine Ritchie and Bruce Leff and the National Home-Based Primary Care Learning Network.

Dear Colleague,

We are researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Johns Hopkins University writing to alert you to a new research study supported by the National Home-Based Primary Care Learning Network.

We wish for you to take 10 minutes to help home-based primary care practices learn from each other during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This survey is being fielded to help increase our understanding of COVID-related practice challenges and the strategies used to overcome them.

The ultimate goal and benefit to you is to help home-based care practices learn from one another to navigate the current and potential future pandemics.

Our COVID-19 survey is strictly voluntary. Participation in the survey will determine consent. If particular practice leaders do not wish to complete the COVID-19 survey, they have the right to refuse without consequence. This one-time survey can be completed by anyone in your practice and should take 10 minutes or less to complete.

Please complete the survey HERE 

Please send your responses by Tuesday, June 9th 2020

Our goal is to quickly obtain and report back to you the findings from this survey so that you can use it in your practice.

Your participation in this research will make a huge difference. We thank you in advance for your help.

If you run into any technical difficulties completing this survey, please email our program manager, Naomi Gallopyn, at [email protected].
