Introduction: The rapid spread of covid-19 and its unknownness has caused public fear and concern and it has affected almost all important economic, political and social aspects of the country.The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between anxiety caused by coronavirus pandemic and psychological well-being of hospital staff.
Methods and Materials: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in May 2016. For this purpose, a sample of 200 men and women related to the medical staff in hospitals of Birjand was selected by available sampling method. Moreover, the standard questions of Reef (2002) Psychological Welfare Questionnaire including 54 questions and Coronary Anxiety Scale (CDAS) in the Iranian sample that contained 18 questions were answered by participants. Statistical analyzes were performed using SPSS software.
Results: The results showed that there was no significant relationship between psychological well-being and anxiety at the level of 0.5. Examining the relationship between psychological well-being and corona virus anxiety in different sections, the results showed that the relationship between psychological well-being and corona virus anxiety in health workers was R = 0.98 (P = 0.002) and 96% of health workers’ anxiety changes were due to psychological well-being changes. Furthermore, 98% of the changes in pharmacy staff anxiety were due to changes in their psychological well-being (R = 0.988 and P = 0.12). There was no significant relationship between psychological well-being and corona virus anxiety among male and female employees and the mean of psychological well-being was significantly different between men and women.
Discussion and Conclusion: Based on the findings, the relationship between psychological well-being and anxiety status was not significant at the 0.5 level. Although there was no significant relationship between corona virus anxiety and psychological well-being, this issue is significant in some areas such as health and pharmacy staff. Additionally, this relationship should not be ignored but it should be acknowledged and considered by the relevant authorities.
