Attitudes and Experiences of Frontline Nursing Home Staff Toward Coronavirus Testing

by Elizabeth Griffith | Nov 05, 2020

MU-COM's OMS-2, Spencer Hofschulte-Beck, in collaboration with Indiana University School of Medicine and Regenstrief Institute Center for Aging Research, recently conducted a study designed to hear the voices of Indiana's nursing home staff after the mandatory COVID-19 testing which occurred in June of 2020. Their experiences with testing, beliefs regarding COVID-19 vaccines, and more are found here

Hofschulte-Beck's role within this project was multi-faceted, including pre-planning, project approval, research, data collection, data analysis, and writing the paper, all of which would not have been possible without ​his coauthors and fellow medical students.
