Chronic low back pain among French healthcare workers and prognostic factors of return to work (RTW)
A non-randomized controlled trial Background: Many factors influence the return to work of workers with chronic low back pain (CLBP). They have been said to vary according to socio-professional group. This study first aimed to compare prognostic factors influencing the return to work of CLBP healthcare workers (HCWs) and other workers (non-HCWs) after rehabilitation coupled with an occupational intervention. The second objective was to improve the evolution of indicators such as clinical examination, psychosocial impact and pain impact. Methods: Between 2007 and 2012, a cohort of 217 CLBP workers...
Physical capacity and risk for long-term sickness absence
A prospective cohort study among 8664 female health care workers OBJECTIVE: To assess the prospective associations between self-reported physical capacity and risk of long-term sickness absence among female health care workers. METHODS: Female health care workers answered a questionnaire about physical capacity and were followed in a national register of sickness absence lasting for two or more consecutive weeks during 1-year follow-up. Using Cox regression hazard ratio analyses adjusted for age, smoking, body mass index, physical workload, job seniority, psychosocial work conditions, and previous...
Understanding Work-related Musculoskeletal Injuries in Rehabilitation from a Nursing Perspective
PURPOSE: The incidence and prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal nursing injuries is a top concern for nurses. These injuries are thought to be a dynamic interplay of multiple factors. A literature review reveals a knowledge gap in understanding context-specific patterns of nursing injuries. DESIGN: Using a cross-sectional descriptive research design, 58 rehabilitation nurses participated in this study. METHODS: Anonymous paper surveys were sent to all rehabilitation nursing personnel on the unit. FINDINGS: Six themes emerged: lack of time and help, patient acuity, ergonomics, body movement...
Work Conditions, Recovery and Health: A Study among Workers within Pre-School, Home Care and Social Work
The study investigated the working conditions associated with the accumulation of stress and lack of recovery and how recovery is related to health. The study group was employed in pre-school, home care and social work (n = 193). Recovery was assumed to be an explanatory variable for the relations between work and health. The response rate on a survey was 79 per cent. Cluster analysis identified three groups: the ‘Recovered’ (36 per cent of the total group) and ‘Not Recovered’ (25 per cent) and the ‘In-between’ (39 per cent). The Not Recovered displayed the whole...
How policy on employee involvement in work reintegration can yield its opposite: employee experiences in a Canadian setting
Canada has a long tradition of involving employee representatives in developing work reintegration policies and expects this to positively affect employee involvement to improve work reintegration success. The purpose of this study was to examine employee involvement in reintegration in a Canadian province as experienced by employees. Method: Fourteen semi-structured interviews were held with employees in a healthcare organization. The interview topic list was based on a review of local reintegration policy documents and literature. Interviews were transcribed verbatim and analysed using ethnographic...
Work-related injuries in Canadian occupational therapy practice
BACKGROUND : No studies investigate work-related injuries experienced by Canadian occupational therapists. PURPOSE : To identify the nature and prevalence of work-related injuries, impact of practice context, cultural and structural factors that influence response to these injuries, and strategies used to manage return-to-work after injury. METHODS : Members of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists were sent an electronic survey in June 2009. FINDINGS: Over half of the 600 respondents reported at least one injury episode. Patient-handling and equipment-related incidents accounted...
Dose–response relation between perceived physical exertion during healthcare work and risk of long-term sickness absence
Objective : An imbalance between physical work demands and physical capacity of the worker may be a risk factor for poor health. Perceived physical exertion provides information about the individual perception of the work demands relative to the capacity to perform the work. This study estimates the risk for long-term sickness absence (LTSA) from perceived physical exertion among healthcare workers. Methods : This prospective cohort study comprises 8592 Danish healthcare workers who responded to a baseline questionnaire in 2004–2005, and subsequently were followed for one year in the Danish...
Retour au travail après une absence pour un problème de santé mentale

Les travaux entrepris dans le domaine de la réadaptation professionnelle et de la santé mentale au travail ont permis de mettre en évidence l’importance d’une démarche de collaboration entre les acteurs concernés par le processus de retour au travail. Toutefois, si quelques études...

Furthermore there is little health specific literature on returning injured nurses to work despite the critical workforce shortages of these professionals. The study aimed to examine barriers and facilitators identified by the RTW Coordinator to returning injured nurses to work and influences on specific...

Are immigrants in the nursing industry at increased risk of bullying at work? A one-year follow-up study
Hogh, Annie et al. (2011). Are immigrants in the nursing industry at increased risk of bullying at work? A one-year follow-up study. Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, 52 (1) : 49-58. The purpose of this study was to explore whether (a) immigrant health care workers (HCW) are more at risk of bullying at work than Danish staff members, (b) this association is increased by previous exposure to bullying and (c) immigrants experience more bullying from supervisors, colleagues and clients/residents. We analyzed cross-sectional baseline data from 5,635 health care students of whom 10.4% were immigrants...
Work-related self-efficacy of occupational therapists in mental health
Aim: Changes in the mental health field have created new job expectations of occupational therapists (OTs). The present research investigated differences in general self-efficacy (GSE) and work-related self-efficacy (WRSE) between occupational therapists (OTs) working in psychiatric hospitals and OTs working in community-based mental health services. Method: Thirty-four OTs working in psychiatric hospitals and 30 OTs working in community-based settings ( n = 60) completed the General Self Efficacy Scale (GSE) and the WRSE in Mental Health Occupational Therapy Scale (WSMOT). Results: The two groups...
Work disability prevention in rural healthcare workers
Approximately 20% of healthcare workers in high-income countries such as Australia, Canada and the USA work in rural areas. Healthcare workers are known to be vulnerable to occupational injury and poor work disability outcomes; given their rural–urban distribution, it is possible to compare work disability prevention in rural and urban areas. However, little attention has been paid to work disability prevention issues specific to rural workers, including rural healthcare workers. A comprehensive review of the literature was conducted to identify rural–urban differences in work disability...
