My research project
Managing cognitive symptoms of long COVID-19: individual and relatives’ experiences
I am interested in the psychosocial impact of the cognitive consequences of Long COVID on both individuals and their relatives. The project will be split into two studies; Study 1 will explore the psychosocial impact on individuals with cognitive consequences of Long COVID and Study 2 will explore the psychosocial impact on relatives. Both; in the first stage of the study, participants will complete an online survey consisting of one open-ended question asking about their experience. In the second stage of recruitment, a purposive sample of participants who consent to be contacted will be invited for interview, which will be semi-structured. The survey data will be analysed using a reflexive Thematic Analysis approach and the interview data will be transcribed and analysed using an Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis approach. The findings will be written up into two empirical papers
