The impact of COVID 19 on the cancer care workforce
A research team led by professor Andreas Charalambous, undertakes a survey on the impact of COVID-19 on the cancer care workforce (SHIELD Study), as a means to comprehensively understand how the workforce has been influenced by the pandemic.
The objective of this study is to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on healthcare professionals with regards of resilience, burnout and coping. We would highly appreciate your participation in the study as your perspectives will provide information that will allow the scientific nursing community to develop and adopt effective interventional programs to effectively and efficiently address the aforementioned factors.
