The impact of the covid-19 pandemic on mental health of health care workers: protocol for a rapid systematic review - project description

Published Updated

It is important to understand the psychological impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on healthcare workers, both frontline and non-frontline, and to identify possible interventions to address such impacts.


Summary

By providing care to patients with covid-19, health care workers are at higher risk of infection and death. Knowledge of these risks combined with long hours, fatigue, and occupational burnout, may increase the psychological toll of this pandemic on health care workers. It is important to understand the psychological impact of the covid-19 pandemic on health care workers, both frontline and non-frontline, and to identify possible interventions to address such impacts. This protocol for a systematic review describes how we will identify studies through the Norwegian Institute of Public Health’s Living and systematic map of covid-19 evidence. This map is the visualization of a database that contains primary and secondary studies of covid-19, categorized according to population, topic, and publication type, after systematic literature searches conducted in the CDC every day. For this systematic review, we will identify all studies in the evidence map that are categorized as Population: Health care providers, and Topic: Experiences and perceptions; consequences; social, political, economic aspects, and assess these for eligibility. We will summarize results according to outcomes relating to mental health, such as changes, prevalence and correlates of mental health problems; interventions and other strategies used; and health care workers’ experiences, perceived need, and preferences regarding mental health and related interventions. We will assess risk of bias/methodological quality through appropriate checklists, and we will assess the certainty of the evidence through the GRADE approach.
