Arthur Sweetman  leads a group that received a $44,898 Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council - Conseil de recherches en sciences humaines (SSHRC-crsh.gc.ca) Insight Development Grant for “Home-care preferences among South Asian seniors in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA): A discrete-choice experiment.” Co-applicants were Katholiki Georgiades, Emmanuel Guindon and HP PhD candidate Sophiya Garasia.

Dr. Sweetman also received funding from McMaster University for two studies related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. He is working with Katherine Cuff to conduct research on Long-term Care Home Staffing and Funding amid COVID-19. This project addresses the need to create appropriately funded evidence-based policies and practices to support health workers and health systems in coping with the significant burden posed by COVID-19.

As well, Sweetman is conducting research along with Economics Professor Stephen Jones on the Labour Market Dynamics in the Covid-19 Crisis and Recovery. This will track live market developments on an ongoing basis and seek to understand the degree to which pre-COVID-19 norms and trends experience short- versus long-term (or permanent) disruption.
