Current national and international studies on COVID-19 and resilience / mental stress
Our COVID-19 studies (in German)
In collaboration with the Department of Anesthesiology and the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy of the University Medical Center, Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, the EU-funded DynaMORE consortium and the EviPan project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), we are conducting the COVID-19 intensive care survey (COVID-19-Intensiv-Studie) to investigate how health professionals, especially in intensive care and emergency care, but also in other medical and paramedical areas, cope with mental burden in the context of the Corona pandemic and what protective factors as well as risk factors for mental burden exist in such a situation. While the results of the first survey in spring 2020 are currently being evaluated and will soon be published, we hope to achieve a more differentiated picture of mental burden and resilience with regard to the progression of the pandemic through this second assessment.
In collaboration with the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy and the Department of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy of the University Medical Center, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, as well as the EviPan project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), we are carrying out the PanMAG survey to investigate, which factors influence the work-related health of health care workers, on the one hand, and how previous strategies to mitigate the pandemic as well as current issues such as the COVID-19 vaccination are perceived and evaluated in this population, on the other hand.
