How are Allied Health Workers Being Deployed During COVID-19?


Description:

This study, similar to our recently released rapid response brief on respiratory therapists, will produce more rapid responses for more occupations. We will investigate ways in which physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, home health aides among others are being utilized during COVID-19. We will add to this data on how many we have across states and describe what they do.
