2. Special Issue in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health – Research Topic “Nursing System in the Time of COVID-19”
“Nurses are present in all health-disease processes throughout the life cycle and in all care settings around the world. This special edition aims to disseminate research studies that address nursing care during the COVID-19 pandemic, considering, among others, the following dimensions:
1. Intervention in terms of prevention and control (Containment measures; Vaccination);
2. Intervention in the provision of care to patients with COVID-19 (home and inpatient care): Emergency care; Intensive care; Rehabilitation care; Follow-up of patients at home;
3. Intervention in the definitions of health and management policies;
4. Intervention in the training of professionals;
5. Intervention at research and development level.
However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the population's care needs persisted. How did nurses respond to these care needs?
We will accept manuscripts from different disciplines as long as the focus is on the nursing system, profession or discipline.”
