Resumen A systematic literature review was undertaken to assess the effectiveness of interventions that aim to prevent back pain and back injury in nurses. Overall, there was no strong evidence regarding the efficacy of such interventions. There was moderate evidence from several studies that manual handling training in itself is not effective, while multidimensional interventions are effective. There was also moderate evidence that stress management programs do not prevent back pain and limited evidence that lumbar supports are effective in preventing back injury in nurses. Evidence regarding the efficacy of exercise interventions and the provision of manual handling equipment and training was conflicting. Implications of these findings for future research needs are discussed.
