The Canadian Nurses Foundation is funding a study to better understand the impact of prolonged PPE use on nurses. Nurses are feeling the physical effects of wearing masks all the time.  That’s why CNF is supporting nurses physical and mental health by funding this study thanks to NeoStrata’s support of the Covid-19 Fund for Nurses.

“CNF is very pleased to support research that can reduce the risk to nurses at the front lines of this pandemic in a year where their health and protection is paramount,” says Christine Rieck Buckley, CNF CEO.
