Bibliographic information 2011, Vol. 84, p.225-230. 31 ref.
Abstract The objective of this study was to examine the extent and relative value of presenteeism and absenteeism, as well as the work-related factors affecting them among health care professionals. A questionnaire survey was undertaken among physicians and nurses of three hospitals in Finland, who estimated their hours of absenteeism and presenteeism during the previous four weeks due to health reasons, and to what degree their work capacity had been reduced during their presenteeism hours. Questionnaire items also included the socio-economic background, factors related to work and work conditions, and possible chronic and acute diseases were solicited. Findings are discussed.
