Deployment of Physician Resources
There is a need for increased health workforce capacity to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Health PEI has been developing a deployment strategy in the event we need to deploy your skillset to other parts of the system to manage the COVID 19 response.

At any time, you may receive a call with a request to report to work in an area of the system where you may not have previously worked. If and when you get a call, you will be asked a series of questions in an effort to match your skill set with the best available site.

Some of the questions you may be asked include:
- What is your current capacity/workload (i.e. how many hours you are currently working)?
- What is your availability (i.e. are you able to work during off-hours or on certain days)?
- What is your preferred location (i.e. clinic; virtual care; hospital; screening clinic; etc.)?
- What is your level of competency to perform the duties related to the work site?

We encourage you to identify any special training or skills you have that would benefit a particular work area.
