Current Research

On behalf of the PN Vaccination Preparedness Sub-Committee:

As you recall Dr Yona Lunsky together with folks at the Women’s College Hospital and research conducted an important survey with our direct support professionals some months ago as the vaccines were becoming more available. We and they want to learn about the rate of interest or hesitancy among our employees toward receiving the vaccine.

The survey is also helpful information for the Vaccine Distribution Education committee from the Provincial Network on Developmental Services as they consider how and where to provide valuable education to support employees as they decide toward receiving the vaccines.

Please use the attached letter as a template to invite your employees to participate in the survey – the survey link is within the attached letter template. Click here.
