Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic various Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) guidelines have been published, but adherence to such guidelines has been variable. We are collecting cross-country data on the usage of PPE by healthcare workers (paramedics, medical technicians, nurses, doctors and midwives) with the aim of identifying differences across the US. This will allow us to learn from different systems and help design unified guidance to optimize the protection of our frontlines.
Please note that participation is voluntary and all responses will remain anonymous. This study has IRB approval by the Ethics committee at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
