Northern Ontario #PPEforHCP - Needs Assessment

IMPORTANT: This form should not be relied on alone for acute care centres or long-term care who are within 14 days or less of PPE/ are in critical need. Please use your supply chain escalation process in addition to this form to ensure that your PPE and equipment needs are met as quickly as possible.

The Northern Ontario PPE for HCP Campaign is a NOSM student-run project that is working collaboratively with the North Regional PPE and Critical Supplies Table, Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM), the Ontario Medical Student Association (OMSA) and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA).

Our goal is to source and manufacture personal protective equipment through donations and get it to communities across all of northern Ontario. We are aiming to fill a gap for rural and isolated communities, and are working with both larger and smaller hospitals and clinics.

The process:
1. By completing this form, you have officially entered into the campaign. The responses to this form will be processed and sent to your regional team, as well as any partners that are helping to source PPE.
2. Teams of students who have been sourcing PPE in the region examine the needs identified and arrange donations.
3. Specific donations are matched to the needs in the region, and if regional donations are not available, shipping donations in from out of region will be explored (dependent on availability).
4. Drop-off and pick-up protocols will be arranged on a case by case basis that emphasizes the safety of donors, recipients, and the public.

For any questions, please contact either Alannah MacLean (northwestern Ontario) or Sarah Mavin (northeastern Ontario)
