ABOUT THE STUDY
ABOUT THE STUDY

The world of work has changed dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hundreds of thousands of Australians have lost their jobs. Millions more are working less or working differently.  

This study, from the School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine at Monash University, explores the physical and mental health impacts of these changes in work, and tracks people's engagement in work and their health over time.

 

We recruited more than 2000 Australians aged over 18 years who had been working before the pandemic. Some of these people had been impacted by COVID-19 related job loss or reduction, others continued to work as normal.

 

Participants completed a telephone or online survey at four timepoints: baseline, 1-month, 3-months, 6-months and 12-months down the track.

This allows us to track changes in work and health over time.

 

Our findings will be fed back to government and employers, providing an evidence-base to support the creation of recovery programs and resources that meet genuine needs.
