||Moderating effects of social support in shiftworking and non-shiftworking nurses
||Apr.-June 1996, Vol.10, No.2, p.128-140. 50 ref.
||Effects of various sources of social support (supervisors, co-workers, spouse, friends and relatives) on personal health and job-related attitudes were examined in 213 nurses at two U.S. hospitals. Measures included role ambiguity (as an indication of job strain), global job satisfaction, intent to quit, and perceived health problems. Results highlighted the importance of social support provided by supervisors in buffering (moderating) work stress, particularly among shift workers. Consideration should be given to the promotion of social support in the workplace.
