  In the first step of the study we used the integrated tool includes the Polish version of the WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire and AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test) and also original questions identifying individual nutrition, demographic, socioeconomic and anthropometric data of subjects. In the future we planned using also The General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28) and The Link Burnout Questionnaire (LBQ) – Polish adaptation of the Italian questionnaire. Therefore we are preparing an application for financing future research from the National Research Center in the OPUS competition
