Author: Oluyemi O. Akanni Imafidon O. Agbonile Joyce O. Omoaregba, James O. Bawo
Since the outbr eak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection, publication-related psychiatric research has flourished worldwide in great measure but lagging in Nigeria. The paper documents the two attempts by the authors to carry out two studies, a randomized control trial and a focused group discussion, among COVID-19 survivors to bridge the research gap in this sample. It also detailed the systemic, attitudinal, perceptional, and institutional obstacles encountered in the course. Conclusively, it proffers far-reaching resolutions to overcome these hindrances, which are applicable for future research projects.
