    Description:

    The 2005 National Survey of the Work and Health of Nurses (NSWHN) is the first nationally representative survey to focus on the working conditions and health of Canada's nurses. Registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs) in all provinces and territories shared their perceptions on a variety of topics, including:- workload- working overtime, whether paid or unpaid- adverse events such as medication errors and patient falls- support and respect from co-workers and supervisors- staffing adequacy- working relations with physicians- their own chronic diseases and injuries- their mental health.

    The 2005 NSWHN was developed in collaboration with organizations representing practicing nurses, health care researchers, health information specialists and federal government departments. The survey was conducted by Statistics Canada in partnership with the Canadian Institute for Health Information and Health Canada. A total of 18,676 nurses were interviewed, representing LPNs, RNs and RPNs in a variety of health care settings and in all provinces and territories. The survey's impressive response rate of 80% reflects the enthusiasm and support of nurses across the country.

    The survey collected information on a rich array of topics reflecting the physical and emotional challenges nurses face in delivering patient care today. Nurses answered many questions about the quality of patient care, working relations with co-workers and managers, the amount of time they work to get their jobs done, and the way they feel about their jobs and careers as nurses. Data from the 2005 NSWHN will provide an invaluable resource for researchers, health care providers, policy makers and anyone with an interest in human resources, particularly in the health care field.

    Description:

    The 2005 National Survey of the Work and Health of Nurses (NSWHN) represents a collaborative effort involving the Canadian Institute for Health Information, Health Canada, and Statistics Canada.

    The NSWHN was designed to examine links between the work environment and the health of regulated nurses in Canada, and is the first nationally representative survey of its kind. The survey's high response rate (80%) reflects the enthusiasm with which nurses involved themselves in the survey.

    Nearly 19,000 regulated nurses, representing registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs) across the country were interviewed on a variety of topics, including the conditions in which they practice, the challenges they face in doing their jobs, and their physical and mental wellbeing.

    They shared their perceptions of work organization, including staffing, shift work, overtime and employee support. Nurses were also asked about work stress, role overload, respect, and quality of patient care. Information about their health status, such as chronic conditions, pain, self-perceived general and mental health, medication use, and the impact of health on the performance of nursing duties, was also collected.

    This document presents key findings from the 2005 NSWHN for each province, as well as for the three territories combined.

    This article examines changes in weight over two-year intervals from 1996/1997 to 2004/2005 among Canadians aged 18 to 64 years. Using data from the longitudinal National Population Health Survey (NPHS), average weight change over four two-year intervals was examined for men and women by age group and body mass index (BMI) group. This article is part of the NPHS release and provides links to tables, other research articles and information about the National Population Health Survey.

    Description:

    The proportion of Canadians receiving governmentsubsidized home care was almost stable between 1994/95 and 2003, rising only slightly from 2.5% to 2.7%. Over that period, the average age of people receiving this type of care fell from just under 65 to 62. Among people who needed help with personal care, the proportion receiving government-subsidized home care fell from one-half to one-third. In 1994/95, 8% of recipients of government-subsidized home care were incontinent; by 2003, the proportion had more than doubled to 17%.

    In 2002, close to 9% of workers were dissatisfied with their jobs. Evening and night shift workers were more likely to be dissatisfied than were those with a regular daytime schedule. Dissatisfaction was more common among men who worked part time, but less common among women who worked part time. Dissatisfied workers tended to report more disability days than did those who were satisfied with their jobs.

    In 2003, 15% of seniors living in private households received some form of home care. Over half of seniors who had home care received it from formal sources only services entirely or partially covered by government, private agencies or volunteers. Housework was the most common type of home care received by seniors. Four in ten seniors who needed help moving about in their house, and one-third of those who needed help with personal care, did not receive home care.

    By 2002/03, about a quarter of people who were 20 to 56 years old and overweight in 1994/95 had become obese. Among overweight men, the risk of obesity was high for those who were younger, smokers, or had an activity restriction. For overweight women, physical activity was protective against becoming obese.

    The percentage of adults who were obese tended to be relatively low in cities, especially large ones.

    The prevalence of overweight/obesity among 2- to 17-year olds was significantly high in Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Manitoba; significantly low percentages of children and youth in Alberta and Quebec were overweight/obese.

    The increase in obesity was particularly sharp among men who were former smokers.

    In 1986-92, people in lower-middle, upper-middle and high income households were less likely than those in the lowest income households to be obese; by 2004, the difference had disappeared among men, and among women, persisted only for those in the highest income group.

A statistical model was also designed to examine the influence of a number of socio-demographic, family, economic, community and well-being characteristics on the respondent's sense of personal control.

With a median duration of 11 weeks, each of these long-term absences costs roughly $8,800. Furthermore, absences lasting upwards of four months were generally associated with negative health, stress, career stagnation, and heightened chances of being on leave again the following year.
