Institute Needs Participants for Corona Study

The Institute of Public Health and Nursing Research (IPP) is looking for participants for a new study. The research topic: “What do our daily lives look like with corona and how does it make us feel?”. Everyone who is over 18 and owns a smartphone can take part.

The aim of the study is to investigate the effects of the corona pandemic and the related measures on our emotions, thoughts, and psychological health. It is particularly interesting to see how these connections will develop over the coming months when different areas of life will be differently affected by the measures and the infection rates may possibly rise in the fall / winter.
The study duration spans up to six months with 4 active days per month. Study participation takes place online and queries can be communicated by phone or email. The study will be offered in German, English, Arabic, Turkish, Russian, and Polish.

Smartphone with You at all Times

What do participants need to do? “The participants should always have their smartphone with them during the four-day survey periods. Obviously, with the exception of at night,” says Christopher Jones, who is carrying out the study under the direction of Professor Benjamin Schüz, Professor Daryl O’Connor (University of Leeds), and Professor Stuart Ferguson (University of Tasmania). The participants can simply get on with their daily lives without any restrictions but are, however, asked to answer several questions repeatedly throughout the day. “None of the survey units take more than two minutes,” underscores Jones.

Participation Requirements:

Requirements for study participation are: You must be 18 or over and own your own smartphone.
