A Critical Discourse Analysis of Family Presence Restrictions in Long-Term Special Care Homes During the 2020/21 COVID-19 Pandemic

Lead investigator: Shawn Emard, RN, BScN, BScHonours, Research Assistant

Through this study, I intend to explore the policy context surrounding the pandemic family presence restriction policies in SK and the language in the policies. The aim of this study is to produce actionable knowledge that may inform the impetus for consultation, increase evidence-based practice in health policy implementation, improve patient and family-centred care, improve pandemic preparedness and response planning, and ultimately improve long-term special care home access for family caregivers in Saskatchewan through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and in the event of future pandemics.
