Project Summary

The study aims to assess the long-term psychological consequences (psychopathological symptoms, anxiety and sleep disturbances) associated with the exposure of LTCF employees to the second wave COVID-19 pandemic in Poland. Access to personal protective equipment, mental health support at the workplace will be also examined as potential factors modifying the level of psychological distress. Quantitative data will be gathered by a population-based on-line survey administered between September 15 and November 15 2020 among LTCF personnel in Poland. Additionally, qualitative data will be collected through a focus group with LTCF employees. The project is a continuation of the research on psychological consequences arising from the exposure of LTCF employees in Poland to the SARS-CoV-2 crisis between May and June, 2020.
