University of Delaware Disease Research Center Study on the Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
The University of Delaware (UD) Disease Research Center (DRC) is seeking to learn more about the health care system during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are interested in learning about the experiences of a broad range of health care workers. They especially hope to learn about the experiences of nurses at work, the types of information and support
they received, and how other in and outside of their workplace may have been treated during this time period. Findings from the study will be shared with the wider community and may help future planning to similar events.
We would like to invite you to participate in a short anonymous survey. By way of brief introduction, the DRC is the oldest center in the world devoted to social science and management aspects of disasters, founded in 1963. Since then they have conducted hundreds of studies on various crises, emergencies and disasters. They are always grateful to the participants in their studies, whose thoughtfulness enables advances in disaster science. More information on the DRC can be found at their website
