Title Health-related quality of life in health care workers with work-related skin diseases
Bibliographic information Sep. 2009, Vol.61, No.3, p.145-151. 30 ref.
Abstract The objective of this study was to describe health-related quality of life among health care workers with suspected occupational skin diseases. Data were collected by means of questionnaires from 278 health care workers with suspected occupational skin diseases. Although these workers display considerable health-related quality of life impairments, their general physical functioning and general health perception appear less affected than expected. Other findings are discussed.
