Caring for those who Care Survey

Caring for those who Care Survey

Working within the perioperative environment is an extremely rewarding profession but it can often place individuals, teams and organisations under pressure. Staff have to make difficult decisions in dynamic and unpredictable circumstances.

What’s more, healthcare professionals are experiencing occupational burnout and fatigue from the increased stress caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. This compounded stress and exhaustion is leading to "COVID Fatigue". Whilst healthcare workers have adapted remarkably quickly to the changes in practice caused by the pandemic, we understand that you continue to face enormous changes.

Human factors are key to enabling safer surgery, and resilience, the ability to manage change, teamwork and support will all be key to helping healthcare workers get through the pressures ahead. Over the next few months our focus will be on what individuals and teams are doing to ensure conditions in the workplace always make the safety of patients the primary concern.

We’d like to obtain an accurate understanding of what supports or hinders the way you work, including things that influence your behaviour. In our first human factor survey we asked you about communication. In this second survey we’d like to find out more about the environment in which you’re working and about your resilience, both of which are particularly relevant in the current circumstances.

We completely respect your privacy, so we will never ask you to disclose your name, contact details or current place of work.

Please note, by completing these questions, you are consenting to the answers being used anonymously. Please only complete this survey once.

Closing date: Friday 26 March.

Thank you for taking the time to help us support you.
