The impact of Covid-19 on the health of healthcare workers in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Québec

The COVID-19 pandemic is a threat to the health of Alberta’s physicians, both through exposure to the virus and through the demands of practicing the best possible medicine under extraordinary conditions. Through this study we will document the risks to which physicians are exposed and the effects on their health now, as demands increase and when the epidemic has passed.

We are approaching every Alberta healthcare worker who may be exposed through work in in-patient units that are likely to admit Covid-19 patients together with healthcare workers working in family medicine, emergency medicine, ambulatory care or  in walk-in clinics.
