We have teamed up with researchers to conduct a study funded by the Wellcome Trust to support intensive care staff who have experienced stressful or traumatic events from working in the COVID-19 pandemic.
This study aims to find out if a brief online intervention can reduce how frequently memories of these events pop unwanted into your mind (intrusive memories).
The psychological impact on intensive care as a result of the pandemic has left many of us still trying to make sense of what we have been through.
Although there are many different ways the pandemic has affected us, this study focusses on intrusive memories. The video below explains exactly what these are.
You can complete the entire study remotely on a computer, smartphone or tablet. It will involve at least two video calls with a researcher over a 14-week period, but no in-person meetings. After using the brief online intervention for the first time guided by a researcher, you can do the intervention as many times as you like. You will not be asked to talk about the events you have experienced in any detail.
By taking part, you will be helping us to develop a much-needed self-management technique to support healthcare staff during the pandemic and beyond.
You will not be asked to talk about the events you have experienced in any detail and there will be no in person meetings.
By taking part, you may have fewer intrusive memories of stressful/traumatic events you have encountered at work.
By being involved you will be helping us to develop a much needed self-management technique to support healthcare staff during the pandemic and beyond.
