Kära kollegor och studenter

Vi är tre forskare (Högskolan i Gävle, Uppsala universitet, Mälardalens högskola) som börjat en internationell forskningsstudie kring Coping med Covid-19. Studien är en del av en större internationell undersökning, i ett tiotal länder.

Det övergripande syftet med denna studie är att utforska hur människor med skilda kulturella bakgrunder har hanterat de problem som Corona-krisen har medfört, särskilt de som är relaterade till deras känslor som oro, rädsla och ensamhet. Målgruppen är universitetsanställda och studenter.

Datainsamling sker med hjälp av en webbundersökning. Webbadressen för den elektroniska undersökningen är kopplad till Sunet Survey vid Gävle Högskola (se mer i informationsbrevet i enkäten). Studien är godkänd av Etiksprövningsmyndigheten, Dnr. 2020-02368.

Vi är tacksamma om du svarar på enkätfrågorna så fort som möjligt, då situationen fortfarande är aktuell. Undersökningen bör inte ta mer än 15 minuter.️

Det vore också bra om du kan dela undersökningen med dina kollegor som är universitetsanställda samt med universitetsstudenter i Sverige och andra länder (se engelsk text nedan). Länken till frågorna hittar ni nedan; där hittar ni också en utförlig beskrivning av studien om ni vill veta mer.

 

Dear Colleagues (university employees: facultystaff and other members) and university students!

We are three researchers (University of Gävle), Uppsala University, Mälardalen University) who have started an international research study on Coping with Covid-19. The study is part of a larger international survey, in about ten countries.

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us all concerning different aspects of our life and brought about a global crisis.

By filling in the below survey you help us to understand the way different groups of people handle / cope with different problems which this crisis has caused; it will help us and other researchers to develop psychological support strategies to cope with the consequences the pandemic can have on mental health and wellbeing.

YOU can be a part of the solution!

The survey should take no more than 15 minutes.️

It would also be great if you could share it with your colleagues/friends who are university employees, lecturers, and also university students in Sweden and other countries.

 

The study is conducted by an international team of researchers from the different countries.

The study is approved by the Swedish Ethical Review Authority (Etiksprövningsmyndigheten), Dnr. 2020-02368.

About the study:
Each question says something about a particular way of dealing with the situation; these ways are called coping methods. We want to know to what extent you have used these coping methods. Please use response options. In this questionnaire whenever we use the word spirituality, we refer also to that kind of spirituality, which is NOT necessarily related to religiosity.

The questions deal with your experiences and shouldn’t result in any uncomfortable situation or risks for you. Your answers to the survey will be saved at the repository of University of Gävle, which is password protected. Only the researchers have access to the material, which is preserved for 10 years. We follow the GDPR directives (EU 2016/679). We will present the results of the study on group and thematic levels only, in scientific publications.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the head of the study, Fereshteh Ahmadi, full professor of sociology at the University of Gävle, Sweden at [email protected]
