Program Description

This FOA invites meritorious research applications which evaluate the use of elastomeric respirators in healthcare environments. Researchers will examine healthcare worker use factors (such as tolerability and comfort), their impact on work practices, and relevant operational/economic aspects. Researchers may also assess strengths and weaknesses of elastomeric devices as compared to filtering facepiece respirators from use, operational, and economic perspectives.
