Canada COVID-19 Snapshot MOnitoring (COSMO Canada): Monitoring knowledge, risk perceptions, preventive behaviours, and public trust in the current coronavirus outbreak in Canada

Author(s) / Creator(s)

Privy Council Office of Canada

Abstract / Description

In light of the rapidly evolving nature of the pandemic, Canada’s response must be agile, but also evidence-based to ensure that the measures and messaging deployed are effective in their goals. It is imperative to understand how citizens perceive the risks relating to COVID-19, as well as their knowledge of the virus and of measures to protect themselves against the virus on an ongoing basis. To assist countries with this goal, the World Health Organization (WHO) has released a Behavioural Insights (BI) Tool for rapid, flexible and cost-effective monitoring of public knowledge, perceptions and behaviours. This study protocol is based on a standard protocol published by the World Health Organization (WHO)/Regional Office for Europe relating to the usage of this tool.
