Patient Isolation and Personal Protective Technology Survey
You have been asked to participate in a user needs study. The purpose of the study is to identify product characteristics for the development of an improved, patient isolation technology and/or personal protective equipment. This interview is voluntary. You have the right not to answer any question or stop the survey at any time. Unless you previously gave us permission to use your name, title, and/or information and / or quote you in any publications that may result from this research, the information you tell us will be confidential.

We aim to make the results of this study broadly available to all those working to battle COVID-19, to help promote understanding of on-the-ground realities and needs.

For any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Debbie Teodorescu (dlteodor@gmail.com).

Thank you so much for helping us keep patients and healthcare providers safe!
