Caring during COVID video series

Healthcare providers from McMaster Children’s Hospital created more than 30 video resources for families to access during the pandemic. View the full playlist.

The motivation behind this series was to support children and their families during a time of change. Most videos were originally created when learning was moved online in early 2020, but the topics remain relevant today. Learn about improving your family’s mental and physical health during the pandemic and some practical tips for caregivers.
