The Sheps Center is offering two collaborative sessions titled “Direct Care Workforce Job Quality and the Impact of COVID-19” in October and “Health Disparity Issues Faced by Home Health Workers since the COVID-19 Pandemic” in November. Check registration details.
This interdisciplinary Seminar will hold intensive and collaborative sessions focused on health outcome and health delivery problems resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our main research topic is health disparities in healthcare delivery and how the COVID-19 pandemic shapes systems and impacts resources, including human resources. Our main product from these collaborative interdisciplinary and multi-organizational work groups of health disparities researchers and students will be a focused grant proposal aimed at examining the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on care delivery and home health caregivers’ own health outcomes.
