AAR is a tool for extracting lessons from one event (through surveys, interviews, and focus groups) and applying them to others. To implement this process, ODP conducted two online surveys and four focus groups with a total of 301 participants to obtain multiple perspectives in a maximally accessible way. Attached is an AAR Brief that describes the development of the COVID-19 Pandemic AAR and focuses on the findings from one subset of data that was collected through an online survey of providers. Thank you for your interest in ongoing efforts to address the COVID-19 Pandemic.
