Project Description

At a time when many families are sheltering at home, frontline healthcare workers have continued to work in the community, often under significant stress. Building on existing international research by the applicants, this longitudinal mixed methods study seeks to investigate the impacts of frontline work on the wellbeing of Victorian healthcare staff and their families. Understanding how frontline families function during times of crisis is crucial to better inform individual and structural mental health supports for this group, prevent significant illness and effectively direct resources.
