Abstract

This collaborative research project is led by Ulster University and supported by researchers from Queen's University Belfast, Bath Spa University and King's College London. It focuses on mental wellbeing, quality of working life, burnout and coping strategies in nurses, midwives, allied health professionals, social care workers and social workers from across the UK, with the aim to provide evidence-based recommendations for supporting the workforce not just during Covid-19, but also during business as usual times. The research commenced with funding from the Northern Ireland Social Care Council, the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, and the NIHR Policy Research Programme grant to the NIHR PRU in Health and Social Care Workforce (King's College London), which was used to collect data from the health and social care workers in UK using an online survey during different time points of the pandemic (Phase 1 - May - July 2020; Phase 2 - November 2020-February 2021, Phase 3 - May - July 2021). Further funding was then secured from the Public Health Agency HSC R&D Division to extend the research study until October 2022. The first three reports and executive summaries are available via the weblink inserted below.
