Dear BIPA Members,
We are a consortium of researchers from Queen Mary University of London, University of Essex, University of Oxford and University of Leicester conducting a short survey-based study of health and care workers exploring their perceptions of safety and experiences of COVID-19 management in their work. The study adopts an intersectional view to examine the influence of gender, ethnicity, and professional role in shaping their perceptions of safety and experience of COVID-19 management in their workplaces, a neglected aspect in COVID19 research.
Social inequalities (with regards to ethnicity, age, gender) inform the distribution of risks and burden of COVID19 infections and deaths. Yet, to date no systematic assessment has been conducted to understand how these factors shape workers’ experiences of COVID management and protection measures in their workplaces. The survey is public, open to all health and care staff (front line, allied, support staff) and is an opportunity for them to give voice to concerns that perhaps they’ve not been able to in the crisis. The survey is short and will not take more than 10 minutes to fill.
We’d be delighted if you are able to disseminate this survey through your networks and encourage them to complete it. Here is the link to the online survey: https://essex.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3I2UX6NsitnNvHT
We look forward to hear from you, and will be available to respond to any questions you may have on the study.
