“We are looking to understand moral distress with relation to health care workers' experiences, well-being, and perceptions of health care in the wake of COVID-19.”
This study will examine the moral distress and well-being of health care workers (HCWs) during the COVID-19 pandemic using online surveys. Participants will complete questions pertaining to their role in health care, workplace pandemic responses and encounters with moral-ethical dilemmas, and psychological distress. Results of our longitudinal study can be used to protect HCWs’ well-being during and following health emergencies, to guide policies, and to prepare for future emergencies.
This study collects data using online methods and does not require you to come to the lab. Please check the methods section for details.
