Our Studies

The Division of Research in the Department of Emergency Medicine is currently conducting several studies in order to support providers and staff, and ultimately improve patient care.

Featured Studies: IMPROVE

During the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers have experienced high rates of psychological distress that are likely to persist beyond the pandemic. In New York City, HCWs experienced acute stress disorder, anxiety, and insomnia during the initial peak of the pandemic, with a quarter experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder and 40 percent experiencing chronic insomnia. Our research aims to understand the sustained psychological symptoms experienced by ED HCWs who treated COVID-19 patients and their downstream impacts on cardiovascular health.
