As part of our research work at the practice we are supporting the following study run by the University of Portsmouth and Southern Health NHS Foundation. We will be sending out information by text and email to our patients should they wish to take part.
Psychological impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and experience: An international survey
Following a highly successful first and second phase which saw over 112,000 participants, researchers from Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust are leading a collaboration group are launching the third phase of their global study into the psychological impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and changing restrictions. The study is linked to the Medical Research Council global health research programme led by the Portsmouth-Brawijaya Centre for Global Health, Population, and Policy, University of Portsmouth.
Phase one results gave valuable insights in to how different people, genders and communities were coping with the global pandemic and the third phase enables more people to take part and ensures an even greater range and comparison between the three phases. You can take part by completing the short questionnaire exploring the psychological impact of the coronavirus and changing restrictions, their effect on our emotions, behaviour and wellbeing. The aim of the survey is to better understand how the coronavirus and the impact that changing restrictions are having on our day to day lifestyle, what is helpful and what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing.
The survey is open to anyone over the age of 16 and able to complete the online questionnaire. If you completed the survey in previous phases, you can take it again this time as it is important to understand how people have adapted and changed. We would encourage everyone, including staff, patients, friends and family to take part.
The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete and you can take it directly here:
