Suddenly of systemic importance - Analysis of the increased societal appreciation of healthcare workers during the Covid19 pandemic and its psychological and behavioural impact on healthcare workers

Initiative: Corona Crisis and Beyond – Perspectives for Science, Scholarship and Society (beendet)
Bewilligung: 10.12.2020
Laufzeit: 1 Jahr 6 Monate


This project is focusing on the question whether increased societal appreciation positively influences nurses and physicians, two critical professional groups in the current fight against the pandemic. First, comprehensive insights concerning the nature and quality of the emerging societal appreciation of healthcare workers (in Germany and Spain), which were affected quite differently by the pandemic, will be generated. Second, knowledge about the influence of this appreciation on healthcare workers' professional behavior and resilience under stressful work conditions will be gained. Finally, relevant evidence will be provided for redesigning public health policies with regard to transformations in healthcare after the pandemic, including the translation of societal appreciation into financial appreciation of nurses' work in particular.
