Psychosocial Evaluation and Assessment of Cancer communities and Healthcare workers during COVID-19 (PEACH C19)
Our research team are conducting an Australia-wide study about the impacts of COVID-19 on people affected by cancer and healthcare workers involved in the delivery of cancer services.
The findings from this research will be used to provide new insights about the psychological and environmental impacts of COVID-19 to ensure that there are appropriate systems and support in place both during and after this evolving health crisis in Australia. If you are affected by cancer (i.e. have a current or past diagnosis of cancer, or are a carer/family member of someone with cancer) or an Australian healthcare worker and/or involved in the delivery of cancer care services within Australia, we invite you to participate in one of the following surveys:
We would like to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected cancer patients, their carers and family members, including their access to diagnostic tests and treatment, views and experiences of telehealth services, health behaviours, and psychosocial issues/outcomes.
We are also interested in the impact of the pandemic on healthcare workers involved in the delivery of cancer services, including changes to their ways of working, operational shifts, adaptation of processes and protocols and psychosocial issues.
