Obesity in Nurses Linked to 'Adverse Work Schedules' Released, #nurseup #obesity #nursing #healthcare #shiftwork

Obesity in Nurses Linked to 'Adverse Work Schedules' Released: 8/3/2012:"For nurses who work long hours or other "adverse work schedules," the risk of obesity is related to lack of opportunity for exercise and sleep, suggests a study in the August issue of Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, the official publication of the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM).

Alison M. Trinkoff, ScD, RN, and colleagues of University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, analyzed data on more than 1,700 female nurses. The study focused on factors related to obesity in nurses with "adverse work schedules"� long hours, high work burden, required on-call/overtime, and/or lack of rest.

Obesity-related factors were compared for approximately 700 nurses meeting these criteria versus 1,000 nurses with more favorable work schedules. About 55 percent of nurses in both groups were overweight or obese."
