Public perceptions and adherence to national health guidelines - Covid-19

Project Details


This is an online questionnaire-based study which focuses on the following questions:

How well do people understand public health guidelines in relation to COVID-19 and what factors affect adherence to those guidelines?

Are people’s understanding of guidelines reflected in their behaviour? If not, are there any key barriers?

How sceptical are people about the information they receive and is this affected by the source of information?

How accurate are people at identifying fake news?

Understanding how well the public comprehend health guidelines and what influences adherence to those guidelines will shed light on how effective the key messages and advice has been so far. It may also be that the public mostly do understand the guidelines but are not necessarily adhering due to key barriers. Understanding these barriers may help inform future public health interventions.
