PSS and RMIT University are conducting a study around the coping mechanisms that pharmacists use to manage stress, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic
In conjunction with Pharmacists’ Support Services (PSS) and RMIT University, a team of researchers is conducting a study around the coping mechanisms pharmacists use to manage stress.
“This is an incredibly relevant area of study considering how little research is done regarding coping mechanisms in pharmacy practice, and with the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said the team.
This survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes and will greatly benefit pharmacists in identifying and understanding what management tools are available to them and how helpful such tools are.
The researchers hope the results of this study will help pharmacists who are struggling to manage stress and what resources are available for them to turn to in these times.
The survey is confidential and will be de-identified during the results compilation stage and reporting of study.
The survey is voluntary and will be available for approximately 2 weeks. At any time, you may choose to withdraw by simply closing the window. Your responses will not be saved.
In case of stress or any anxiety in taking this survey, you may call Pharmacists’ Support Services on 1300 244 910 between 8.00am and 11.00pm (EST), available every day of the year. Or please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or https://www.lifeline.org.au/Get-Help/.
This study has been reviewed and approved by the Human Ethics Committee, project number 24747. If you have any feedback, questions, or concerns about the survey please contact Project Supervisor Wejdan Shahin at firstname.lastname@example.org
