What Families Think and Do? A survey for families visiting the pediatric emergency department

The objective of this study is to understand what families think and do in regards to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) illness in Global communities. Parents arriving to emergency departments all around Canada, United States, Australia, Switzerland, Israel, Japan and Spain are responding to the same survey in regards to their concerns, thoughts and actions during COVID-19 with their children. Understanding parents considerations and actions will help respond to this pandemic and future needs.
