Questback Survey Questionnaire

Welcome to the Post COVID-19 Survey


thank you for agreeing to take part in this survey. Please note that this survey is concepted for healthcare professionals only and not for patients.

The AUC - Academy of Trauma Surgery (Akademie der Unfallchirurgie GmbH) - is the educational service provider of the German Society for Trauma Surgery (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Unfallchirugie e.V.). Furthermore, the AUC develops and operates on behalf of the German Society for Trauma Surgery e.V. and other professional societies as well as for public authorities and scientific organizations, medical digital registers, clinic certifications and the TeleKooperation network for teleradiology and teleconsultation in Germany. The AUC is actively supporting the herein survey measuring potential effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Europe-wide healthcare system, processed by the Kiel University (Christian-Albrechts-Universität in Kiel), Institute for Innovation Research. The Institute for Innovation Research at the Christian-Albrechts-Unversity in Kiel is focusing on research on innovation management challenges and on the development of sustainable products, services and product-service-systems in healthcare, especially with respect to the social relevance of demographic and climate change. 

The aim of the study is to measure the potential effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and to analyze the status quo and the capability of the healthcare system as we know today to cope with various emerging trends in context of new digital technology in the healthcare sector in order to get a better understanding of the future healthcare system and to derive recommendations for action for a future work environment where healthcare professionals can work safely and where medical quality care is available to all those who need it. The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete.

COVID-19 has caught us all, particularly medical professionals. From the perspective of a medical professional, regardless of whether trauma surgeon or nurse, COVID-19 bought fear, true infections and numerous preventative means that make clinical medicine even more complex than it has been so far. During the last months surgeons have experienced a new attitude towards the necessity of surgery and personal interaction, and might have noticed a rise of new digital technologies that have been available for a long time but have never been used to such extent. The big change that has gone through daily routine and puts a different light onto almost all aspects of medicine and trauma surgery - most indications for surgery are not debatable but communication around them has suffered from restrictions and more complex organization. With COVID-19 came an advent of digital technology that has proven to be quite effective in many ways. In this relevance, we see the necessity to analyze positive as well as potential negative effects the big change in our field of medicine has brought to us in order to make use of mechanisms that have fatefully been implemented in clinical procedures.

Your help, by participating in our survey, will be most appreciated and may help us all to learn from the burden we are currently suffering from.
