Abstract

Working as healthcare workers and emergency workers during the $rst wave of COVID-19 has been associated with high levels of stress and burnout, while hardiness, and resilience have emerged as protective factors. Two studies were conducted recruiting healthcare workers and emergency workers involved in the care of COVID-19 patients. "e main purpose of our study was to verify the trend of stress, anxiety, depression and resilience levels during the pandemic and the e#ects on their quality of professional life in Italian health and emergency workers of comparison of a $rst sample recruited from the $rst wave of COVID-19 (N = 250) with a second sample relative to the second wave (N = 273) and with a third sample relative to the third wave (N = 295). "e results show that the mediating e#ect of resilience between predictors and outcomes is veri$ed in the $rst wave on all variables, while the e#ect of depression in the second wave on professional quality of life increases and in the third wave while maintaining still high levels of stress, the e#ect of physical resilience is total compared to the quality of professional life.
