Improving Access to COVID-19 Treatment for vulnerable populations living in LTC: an integrated operational approach

Did you know that during the Pandemic, residents residing in Long-term care (LTC) facilities suffered disproportionately from severe outcomes of COVID-19? While prioritized for vaccination, an additional layer of defence exists in antiviral treatment, which can effectively reduce severe disease and hospitalization for high-risk patients. 

Please watch this short explainer video from Immunize.io Clinical Director Ajit Johal describing this important Quality Improvement project to reduce the impact of COVID-19 in LTC settings and how you can access tools and resources to support your facility.  

Tools and resources were developed by the Immunize.io study team as part of this quality improvement project to support the implementation of COVID-19 treatment protocols within the long-term care setting. 

Thank you for your interest in our QI study. We have reached the maximum number of participants.
