PURPOSE: This study aimed to create a Vietnamese version of both the Maslach Burnout Inventory-General Survey (MBI-GS) and Areas of Worklife Scale (AWS) to assess the burnout state of Vietnamese clinical nurses and to develop a causal model of burnout of clinical nurses. METHODS: We conducted a descriptive design using a cross-sectional survey. The questionnaire was hand-divided directly by nursing departments to 500 clinical nurses in three hospitals. Vietnamese MBI-GS and AWS were then examined for reliability and validity...

Risky behaviours, particularly illegal and heavily stigmatized behaviours, are difficult to measure through self-report in both high risk groups and the general population. Underreporting can result in substantially biased estimates of non-injection drug use (IDU) risk of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. We hypothesized that asking about the existence of social networks injection drug use may be a useful marker of IDU. A cross-sectional survey of physicians and nurses was conducted in seven hospitals in Georgia...

Horticulture was shown to represent a well-being source for older adults, encompassing the physical, mental and social domains. Aim of this pilot study was to contribute to extant literature through the investigation of the quality of experience associated with horticultural versus occupational activities. A group of 11 older residents of a nursing home were involved in a crossover study with a baseline measure. Participants attended weekly horticultural and occupational sessions for two six-week cycles. Experience Sampling Method was administered before the program and after each session, to assess participants' levels of happiness, concentration, sociability, involvement, challenges and stakes, and self-satisfaction...

Decreasing the individual dose limit of exposure to ionizing radiation to the eye lenses means verifying the need for routine monitoring of the eye lenses of workers exposed to ionizing radiation, including those employed in facilities producing radiopharmaceuticals based on short-lived isotopes. This work analyzes the exposure of the eye lenses of employees of centers that produce the isotopes for positron emission tomography, in particular fluorine-18. It takes into account the employment structure and work system of the discussed centers, including in terms of changing the dose limit of exposure to the eye lenses...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: We investigated the inter-relationships between workplace violence (WPV), thriving at work, and turnover intention among Chinese nurses and explored the action mechanism among these variables. BACKGROUND: WPV is a dangerous occupational hazard globally, and it is pervasive in the health service industry. As a corollary, WPV may produce many negative outcomes among nursing staff. Consequently, it hinders nurses' professional performance and reduces nursing quality...

The health of an airline pilot is imperative to the safe travels of millions of people worldwide. Medical providers evaluate the cardiovascular risks for airline pilots and the medical requirements to obtain and maintain licensure as an airline pilot. It is the role of the occupational health nurse practitioner to evaluate and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in this population.

Implementation of evidence-based practice (EBP) is a complex task. This study, conducted in an acute geriatric setting, aims to compare self-reported capability beliefs on EBP between health professionals and students, and to compare the use of EBP between health professional groups. Occupational therapists, physicians, physiotherapists and registered nurses with three or more months' employment, and all students from the occupational therapy, medical, physiotherapy and nursing programs, who had conducted workplace learning at the department, were invited...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess the cost impact of administering erythropoiesis-stimulating agents once every 4 weeks instead of one to three times a week to treat anaemia in patients undergoing dialysis. METHODS: This was a monocentric retrospective study involving 27 patients who underwent haemodialysis between 2009 and 2013 in a university hospital in Angers, France. The study was a cost-minimisation analysis from the hospital perspective. Only direct medical costs were considered...

BACKGROUND: The French National Alzheimer Plan 2008-2012 created specialized Alzheimer teams, which provide up to 15 sessions of cognitive rehabilitation in the patient's home for 3 months. Sessions are conducted by an occupational therapist and a gerontological nursing assistant. OBJECTIVES: As the patient's experience is one determinant of successful implementation, we explored the usefulness of these teams as viewed by the patient and his or her main caregiver...

The extent and severity of the psychological effects following chemical release disasters have not been widely reported. The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of hydrogen fluoride (HF)-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and to identify associated psychological risk factors. On September 2012, an estimated 8 to 12 tons of HF gas, which dissolves in air moisture to form droplets of corrosive hydrofluoric acid, escaped from an industrial complex in Gumi, South Korea. Ten months later, structured questionnaires that included items from the Impacts of Event Scale (revised Korean version) as well as questions about demographic and psychological risk factors related to PTSD were distributed to workers in the affected area...

BACKGROUND: Healthcare professionals involved in pain management come from different disciplines, which may have different perspectives and training about evidence-based practice (EBP). A common concern for health professionals is pain management. Understanding how different professions involved in pain management view EBP forms the ideal context to study professional differences in EPP, and how this might influence pain management. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare different professions with respect to knowledge, attitudes and self-reported behavior toward EBP...

OBJECTIVE: To determine factors associated with influenza vaccine uptake among HCWs. METHODS: This secondary analysis of a prospective cohort study included HCWs aged 18-69 years, working ≥ 20 hours/week in a Canadian acute care hospital. Questionnaires were administered to participants in the fall of the season of participation (2011/12-2013/14) which captured demographic/household characteristics, medical histories, occupational, behavioral and risk factors for influenza...

The missions of occupational health nurses are exclusively preventive, except in the event of emergency situations. They are involved in the prevention of occupational stress, the assessment of psychosocial risks and the improvement of quality of life at work.

Being a caregiver means seeking to ensure the wellbeing of others. However, when these members of staff are not treated well by their employers, their health can be affected. In health care facilities, to prevent occupational stress, managers must provide opportunities for listening, exchanges and dialogue between different professionals, give employees the power to act and talk, and observe working conditions as well as their reorganisation.

Nurses who work on general wards are on the frontline for detecting psychosocial risk factors during induction and support interviews. They supplement their diagnoses by exploring areas in which occupational stress may be expressed.

We reported the cases in order to evaluate the effects of individualized nutrition interventions for enhancing self-management abilities of prediabetic subjects. We conducted four nutrition interventions for weight control in two subjects with high-risk of type 2 diabetes. The first subject was a 53-year-old housewife, and the second subject was a 46-year-old male office worker. The subjects visited the medical center 4 times during the study period, and the lifestyle interventions were advised by a clinical team comprised physicians, clinical dietitians, and nurses...

Anxiety and depression symptoms are common in this occupational group and the necessity of supportive actions is vital. This is especially true for nurses working in high intensity and demanding settings such as oncology units. AIM: This study examined the effects of a music intervention on anxiety, depression, and psychosomatic symptoms of oncology nurses. METHODS: Forty-eight oncology nurses, were randomized to either an intervention group (n = 22) attending four consecutive weekly 1-h music classes or a control group with no intervention (n = 26) who maintained their usual lifestyle habits, for one month...
