The purpose of this study to examine the long-term general psychological symptoms, and identify the predictors of these psychological symptoms. The sustained psychological toll of working in a high-stress environment can have downstream impacts on health. It is therefore important to also consider how psychological factors influence physical health, for example, cardiovascular risk in ED staff. As part of the study, we will also determine the prevalence and predictors of long-term psychological symptoms in ED clinicians who worked during the COVID-19 pandemic and characterize the relationship of sustained COVID-related psychological symptoms to 3-year progression of cardiovascular disease risk.
