UQ researchers are seeking participants aged 50 years and over to participate in an anonymous survey regarding their COVID-19 experience to help understand the impact of the pandemic and potential protective mental health factors.

Participation in this study will involve completing a 30 minute online survey (or paper-based survey, if preferred). Questions relating to participants’ experience of COVID-19 will be included to comprehensively understand the impact of the pandemic. If participants anticipate that such questions may be distressing, they are encouraged to consider whether or not this research project is suitable for them.  

The aim of this study is to help identify individual factors which may have a protective benefit for older adults experiencing pandemics.


50 years of age or over
