The investigators aim to:
- gather insight into the emotional highs and lows of being a healthcare student during the pandemic
- identify any facilitators, obstacles or barriers to accessing the e-package.
- identify perceptions of healthcare students towards the value of the e-package during and after the COVID19 pandemic.
- establish recommendations for longer-term support for psychological wellbeing in healthcare students.
Qualitative interviews will be conducted with up to 45 purposively sampled healthcare students who have accessed the e-learning resource. The interview will be semi-structured and include a measure of mental wellbeing (Warwick-Edinburgh Wellbeing Scale, 14-item - license received), and single items measures of job stressfulness, job satisfaction, presenteeism, turnover intentions and work engagement.
Findings will inform future supportive interventions for healthcare students.
