Have you experienced COVID-19? Help us improve the care experience

Have you experienced COVID-19? If so, you can help improve the care experience for future patients.

We are seeking people who have personally experienced COVID-19 to join a team and advise on the creation of virtual reality videos. The videos will be used to teach health-care providers about the patient experience with COVID-19 in order to inform and improve the way care is delivered.

How you can help

Option 1

Join our research study project team to inform the development of virtual reality videos showing what it is like to be a patient with COVID-19. As a member of the project team you will:

  • Share your lived experience as a patient with COVID-19 to inform the development of virtual reality videos.
  • Have the option to share your own experience with COVID-19 in a video recording.
  • Have the option to participate in an interview evaluating your experience creating the video with the team.

Time commitment: Approximately 6 hours

You can participate from your home via phone or internet, and some filming may be done at Sunnybrook.

Option 2

Share your thoughts, feelings and other reflections on your care experience for a video recording which will be used to teach health care workers about the patient experience of COVID-19.

Time commitment: Approximately 60 mins. Filming will be done virtually.
