Study Recruiting Families of Children With Immune System Conditions

Making visible the life stories of families of children who are immunocompromised during COVID-19

Principal Investigator: Dr. Roberta Woodgate

Study Summary

We want to understand and document the lived experience of families with a child who is immunocompromised (IC) or has an immune-system condition (ISC) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Families from across Canada who have a child aged 5 – 25 who is IC/ISC are invited to participate. During the study, you, as well as each family member who desires, will participate in an individual interview with a research staff member.

You will also participate individually or as a family in a photograph activity and discuss the photos in an interview. You can take the study at a pace suitable to your families’ life schedule, the study will be going on till May 2025.

You will be provided with a $30.00 honorarium for each interview a family member does. Your participation in this study will provide important insights into the experience of families with children who are IC/ISC throughout the current COVID-19 and future crises.
