Inspired by the ‘Lost on the Frontline’, collaboration between The Guardian and Kaiser Health News that aims to document the lives of health care workers in the U.S. who die from COVID-19, we have developed this parallel initiative here in Canada.
If you know a healthcare worker who has died from COVID-19, we’d like you to share their story.
Similar to Guardian/Kaiser, we are specifically documenting workers who were exposed while treating or caring for patients with COVID-19 during the pandemic, or were exposed because they worked at a medical facility serving COVID-19 patients.
Taking a whole of the health workforce approach, we are including (but are not limited to) the following:
- Paramedics and EMTs
- Respiratory therapists
- Medical radiation technologists
- Medical laboratory service workers
- Personal support workers/Health care aides/Continuing care assistants
- Occupational Therapists
- Psychologists & other mental health workers
- Environmental services staff or cleaning crews at medical facilities
- Dieticians and food service workers at medical facilities
- Porters who transport patients
- Medical administrators
You can get in touch by filling in the form below. Your responses are secure as the form is encrypted and only the Canadian Health Workforce Network and its collaborating partners [TO BE INSERTED] will have access to your contributions.
One of our staff who is working on this project will be in touch in advance of any publication on our website or social media, so please provide contact details.
