Stress and Coping Mechanisms in Urban versus Rural Nurses during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The intent of this project is to understand how the pandemic has changed and created a diverse set of stress and coping strategies. The primary research will be conducted on nurses from the rural hospital setting of UNC Johnston Health at the Smithfield location, and then it will be compared to the experiences shared by nurses at UNC Medical Center, which is an urban setting. This study will focus specifically on nurses that have provided extensive direct inpatient care to COVID-19 patients during the pandemic. Hopefully with sufficient evidence, this research may expose discrepancies in nursing stress between the two population sets and suggest innovative and novel programs and policies to be created by hospital entities in order to support nurses during times of COVID-19 and beyond.

NC CEAL Supplemental Survey

Do you know anything about COVID-19? Yes? Great! We want you. No? Great! We want you, too! This study is a multiple-choice survey about people's thoughts about COVID-19 prevention (mask-wearing, vaccinating) and treatment. You do NOT need to have had COVID-19 or even be at risk. Your opinion matters! We don't care whether you've had a vaccine or been in a clinical trial. We want to learn from YOU. The survey will take you around 15 minutes (probably less) to complete. It is online. We will NOT ask for your name or any other identifying information--everything is completely anonymous. Will you help us make science better?

COVID-19 and Racial/Ethnic Achievement Gaps

I aim to examine the impacts of remote schooling on the racial/ethnic achievement gaps in Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and what mechanisms led to this impact. My study will help map how the switch to remote schooling during the COVID-19 pandemic impacted student achievement, particularly for students from marginalized backgrounds as compared to privileged students.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Asian-identifying college students with self-reported disordered eating

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to uncertainty in the lives of many individuals. This has become a stressor, especially for college students, due to illness, job insecurity, lack of social interaction, etc. We are interested in studying the effects of the pandemic on eating behaviors, overall health and lifestyle of Asian-identifying college students. Asian-identifying individuals make up one of the smallest demographics in diagnosed disordered eating but one of the largest demographics to self-report disordered eating. We hope to uncover the effects that this pandemic has had on disordered eating behaviors in this particular demographic to add to the present literature and find potential connections between COVID-19, disordered eating, and various cultures.

RADx-HOT

This observational, cohort sub-study is embedded within a larger public health intervention that distributes at-home, self-administered, SARS-CoV- 2 antigen testing kits to households within pre-selected communities through the CDC. Within this sub-study, the socio-behavioral mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 community transmission will be evaluated, including social interactions, health behaviors, healthcare utilization, knowledge, disease burden, and at-home testing feasibility. Duke University IRB is the lead site for this study, and will be the only site that has participant interaction. This IRB is being submitted as UNC personnel will have access to data for this trial.

Physicians' Occupational Health During Covid-19: A Qualitative Analysis of Systems Factors

Physicians are at risk for high rates of depression, substance abuse, suicide, and burnout, an occupational phenomenon resulting from chronic workplace stress. New working conditions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated these occupational health burdens for physicians at a time when baseline levels of stress, burnout, and poor mental health were already overwhelmingly high.This onslaught of new (and potentially recurrent) acute stressors on top of chronic stress presents crisis of occupational health and moral integrity for physicians. There is an important need to (1) characterize the relationship between pandemic workplace conditions and adverse health outcomes (e.g. fatigue, stress, burnout, mental illness) and (2) identify work practices and organizational characteristics that promote occupational health and wellbeing and reduce the risk of such outcomes. To respond to these urgent and ongoing needs, we propose a novel exploratory study of the occupational wellbeing of physicians working on the front line of COVID-19 care.
