ESCMID Professional Affairs Subcommittee (PAS) Survey 2020


The role of health care workers during COVID-19

 

Dear healthcare worker,

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has heavily impacted almost every country around the world. In many cases, institutions have had to adapt their activities in response to the first wave of this outbreak. Healthcare workers are having to work in unusual conditions with new protocols, using new personal protective equipment, with limited training, and with changing clinical recommendations with scarce evidence.

 

The Professional Affairs Subcommittee of the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) has developed a survey in order to determine the impact of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic on institutions across the world, from the point of view of their health care workers, regardless of whether they work in Infectious Diseases, Clinical Microbiology or in other specialties.

 

Thank you very much in advance for your collaboration in this survey and, of course, for your huge effort fighting against SARS-CoV-2.

 

The ESCMID PAS Survey 2020 has been closed, first results will be shown at the 4th ESCMID Professional Affairs Workshop.
