Health professionals’ working conditions survey

Are you a registered nurse or doctor on an inpatient ward?

Thank you for agreeing to participate in this survey about health professionals’ working conditions, quality of care and safety.

The survey is part of a wider research project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme from 2020 to 2023 (Grant Agreement 848031).

As a health professional with first-hand knowledge of our hospital, your responses are of the utmost importance and will be used to improve quality of care and the work environment.

The aim of research and why we are involved is to improve mental health and wellbeing among health professionals in Europe. The results of the survey will inform how we work with you to deliver improvements for your ward or service.

Following the instructions given in the questionnaire, we ask you to answer a number of questions about your perception on various aspects of your work environment, for example the relationship with other health professionals, the workload and staffing of the ward, intention (if any) to leave the profession, patient safety, etc.

The questionnaire takes approximately 20 minutes to complete; it should be completed within three weeks of receiving your invitation email.
