We will investigate whether fear of covid-19 and measures taken in connection with covid-19 has an impact on our patient care. This will allows us to interact and correct current situation that can be improved. The questionnaire will enable us to see if there are patterns around any effects that affect specific patient groups so that we can improve the organization for these and make the patients at ease.
A simple questionnaire for patients at the department of Old Age Psychiatric Day Unit with questions about possible experiences / fears with regard to coronavirus will be administered by a health professional with different grading system.
The purpose is to investigate il patients have different thoughts about their experiences, possibly different needs for information and measures that need to be considered at our section as well as to investigate the effect of visit restrictions, time alone, loneliness, opportunity for activities etc.
