  • Questionnaires
  • First month of the study: self-administered questionnaires used in order to evaluate nursing work environment (Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index PES-NWI), caregivers quality of life at work (Nottingham Health Profile NHP, Perceived Stress Scale PSS10 and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale HADS) and caregivers satisfaction at work (Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire MSQ) will be completed by caregivers (doctors, nurses and assistant nurses).

  • Factors
  • Purpose: The aim of this study was to identify influencing factors for sleep quality among shift-working nurses based on a three-factor scoring model that included sleep efficacy, sleep quality and daily dysfunction. (kan.or.kr)
  • Although musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and other health complaints are an occupational problem for ambulance personnel, there is a lack of knowledge regarding work-related factors associated with MSDs and other health complaints. (diva-portal.org)
  • A random sample of 234 female and 953 male ambulance personnel participated in a national questionnaire survey on work-related factors, and musculoskeletal and other health complaints. (diva-portal.org)
  • In conclusion, the national survey showed that self-reported physical demands was a risk factor of having MSDs, and that self-reported psychological demands and worry about work were important risk factors of having MSDs and other health complaints. (diva-portal.org)
  • In the Million Women Study, the RR for 20 or more years of night shift work was 1.00 (95% CI = 0.81 to 1.23), with no statistically significant heterogeneity by sleep patterns or breast cancer risk factors. (ox.ac.uk)
  • The algorithm takes into account factors such as shift time and length, previous work schedules, and break times to produce fatigue likelihood scores for each shift. (gc.ca)
  • The results showed a significant interaction of year*group for social factors, sleep quality, mental fatigue, and heart/respiratory complaints, and attitude to work hours. (arctichealth.org)

  • Originally designed for the U.S. Armed Forces and the U.S. Department of Defense, SAFTE has also been used by the U.S. Department of Transportation to evaluate work schedules for accident risk. (gc.ca)
  • Physicians
  • Objective To summarise the available scientific evidence on the health effects of exposure to working beyond the limit number of hours established by the European Working Time Directive (EWTD) on physicians. (bmj.com)
  • While associations are clear, the existing evidence does not allow for an established causal or 'dose-response' relationship between LWH and incidents at work, or for a threshold number of extended hours above which there is a significantly higher risk and the hours physicians could work and remain safe and healthy.

  • risk
  • Objectives To conduct a meta-analysis of observational studies assessing the association between shift work and the risk of DM. (bmj.com)
  • We included observational studies that reported OR with 95% CIs for the association between shift work and the risk of DM. (bmj.com)
  • Conclusions Shift work is associated with an increased risk of DM. (bmj.com)
  • 5 However, whether shift work increases the risk of DM remains unclear. (bmj.com)
  • Over the past decades, a few epidemiological studies have assessed the association between shift work and the risk of DM, but the results are inconsistent. (bmj.com)
  • Thus, we aimed to conduct a meta-analysis of observational studies to summarise the epidemiological evidence on an association between shift work and the risk of DM. (bmj.com)
  • Conclusions LWH could increase the risk of percutaneous injuries and road traffic accidents, and possibly other incidents at work through the same pathway. (bmj.com)
  • I plan the regime based on the patient's work schedule, tolerance for downtime, pain threshold, risk adversity and financial constraints. (sweng.sg)
  • Used this way, OSMs are generally considered a Level 2 control in the fatigue hazard control model (see detailed discussion in Developing and Implementing a Fatigue-Risk Management System ( TP 14575E )) because they determine risk based on the actual behaviour of a particular employee rather than the inferred average behaviour of an unspecified person across the entire schedule. (gc.ca)
  • The software estimates fatigue-related risk for groups of workers in a particular schedule rather than for specific individuals. (gc.ca)
  • Shift work and colorectal cancer risk in the MCC-Spain case-control study. (nih.gov)
  • We evaluated the risk for colorectal cancer (CRC) in relation to shift work history in a population-based case-control study in Spain. (nih.gov)
  • Results Having ever performed rotating shift work (morning, evening and/or night) was associated with an increased risk for CRC [odds ratio (OR) 1.22, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.04-1. as compared to day workers. (nih.gov)
  • Conclusions These data suggest that rotating shift work may increase the risk of CRC especially after long-term exposures. (nih.gov)
  • Besides, there is no data about the impact of 12-hours working shift organization on the performance of intensive care units regarding clinical risk management. (ichgcp.net)
  • Any worker exposed to hot and humid conditions is at risk of heat illness, especially those doing the heavy work many ironworking perform daily. (ironworkers.org)
  • Some workers might be at greater risk than others if they have not built up a tolerance to hot conditions, including new workers, temporary workers or those returning to work after a week or more off. (ironworkers.org)

  • Software packages typically provide graphic representations of the work-related fatigue produced by a given schedule. (gc.ca)
  • Some also provide aggregate statistics for groups of employees and produce simple reports that show whether the schedule complies with thresholds established by the company or the regulator for work-related fatigue. (gc.ca)
  • FAID predicts fatigue, sleepiness, and performance based on hours of work. (gc.ca)
  • Obesity
  • Our data imply that alterations in the sleep/wake schedule would lead to an increased daily range in circulating leptin, with lowest leptin upon awakening, which, by influencing food intake and energy balance, could be implicated in the increased prevalence of obesity in the shift work population. (biomedsearch.com)
  • In both studies have obesity, high triglycerides and low HDL-cholesterol been more prevalent among the shift-working group compared to the day-working group. (diva-portal.org)
  • Further research aimed at understanding that the physiology and social features of social jetlag may inform obesity prevention and have ramifications for policies and practices that contribute to increased social jetlag, such as work schedules and daylight savings time. (nih.gov)
