Take Part from Ireland

We are seeking frontline healthcare workers in Ireland to take part in 2 separate components of our project:

Online Survey

Complete a short online questionnaire asking about your experiences working on the healthcare frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Take part on any internet-connected device, at any time. 


The questionnaire is completely anonymous, takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, and asks about your physical and mental health, your work situation during COVID-19, and what supports did or would help you.

Video Interview

Schedule an interview with a researcher at a time that suits you. 


Interviews are semi-structured and approximately 40 mins - 1hr long, allowing you to share your experience of the COVID-19 pandemic while working on the healthcare frontline with us. 


Interviews will be recorded, with any identifying information removed during transcription and recordings will be deleted once a transcript is made. 


To read the full information and schedule an interview, click on the button below.


By taking part in either the survey or an interview (or both!) you will be providing information that will help us to create guidelines for supporting frontline workers during pandemics, which can then be implemented during COVID-19 and beyond. 

Key information

Frontline healthcare workers are under stress due to COVID-19, but there are no existing best practice guidelines for supporting their mental health in a long-term 21st century pandemic.


Our project, led by researchers in NUI Galway and Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, will gather and analyse information about the experience of frontline healthcare workers in Ireland and Italy, and develop and validate best practice guidelines for supporting their mental health.
