Researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County are conducting a research study to investigate the stress impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on paramedics and those around them.

This study will be conducted by use of an online survey. It will be required of participants to take the survey alongside a partner (‘Partner’ is defined as a family member, friend, or romantic partner and lives in the same residence as the paramedic).

The survey will take about 45 minutes to complete. To participate, you must be a paramedic who is not retired and was on active duty before January 2020. The survey is completely voluntary, and your answers will be anonymous.
