||Determinants of implementation of primary preventive interventions on patient handling in healthcare: A systematic review
||June 2009, Vol.66, No.6, p.353-360. Illus. 36 ref.
||The objectives of this literature survey were to identify barriers and facilitators to the implementation of preventive interventions in the area of patient handling in healthcare and their influence on the effectiveness of these interventions. Barriers and facilitators were classified into individual and environmental factors. The most important factors were "convenience and easy accessibility" (cited in 56% of the papers studied), "supportive management climate" (18%) and "patient-related factors" (11%). An important individual factor was motivation (63%). Various factors influence the implementation of primary preventive interventions, but data were lacking for evaluating the effectiveness of the interventions.
