Background: Soft tissue rheumatic disorders (STRDs) are very common and impact enormously general population, working groups and physiotherapist practices. However, they do not have neither a clear case definition nor objective tests to be accurately diagnosed rendering them neglected with poorly-estimated burden. Shoulder is one of the most frequent sites for STRDs. Aim: The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for shoulder STRDs among Lebanese adults aged ≥ 15 years...

In Tunisia, few studies have been focused on occupational lumbar back accidents. We conducted a descriptive retrospective study of private sector employees in central Tunisia who were victims of lumbar back accidents, reported during a 5-year period from 2010 to 2014, to determine the prevalence and factors associated with their severity and sequelae. Data were collected from the regional centre of the National Health Insurance Fund of Sousse. We identified 293 cases, a prevalence of 14.2% in relation to all occupational accidents reported during this period...

REVIEW
Muntaha Elayyan, Janet Rankin, M W Chaarani
Background: Healthcare professionals' empathic behaviour is an important component of quality health care. Patients' reports suggest that empathy is often lacking. Specific factors that may facilitate or inhibit empathetic behaviour have not been extensively examined. In Qatar, empathy may be affected by a completely multicultural, multilinguistic setting where healthcare professionals and patients interact. Aim: The purpose of this integrative literature review is to provide the latest evidence on factors that influence the demonstration of empathetic behaviour of nurses and physicians toward patients and to draw general conclusions that increase understanding...

Methods: This retrospective cohort study was conducted in 2014 in 10 randomly selected primary health care clinics in 5 governorates of Gaza...
