Low back pain (LBP) in a research by a team from the College of Nursing
Lower back pain (LBP) is recognized as a cause of morbidity in the developed nations in different occupational situations specifically, in health care workers (HCWs) including physicians, nurses and technicians, who are vulnerable to LBP. About 60–80% of the general people suffer from LBP at some time during their lives. However, there is not enough care about workplace health and safety problems facing the health care workforce in developing nations such as Libya. work-related issues among health care workers (HCWs) in operating room at Mosul teaching Hospitals are described in this study.by a team from College of Nursing at University of Mosul.
Mr. Rami Ramadan, the instructor of Nursing at College of Nursing said that “The health care workers experience a higher prevalence of lower back pain (LBP) particularly among female, complaints due to no proper policy related to LBP. The job has exposed them to the health problem. Most of them showed the
same intensity of complaints. Consequently, it might be suggested that LBP proceeds a recurrent rather than an aggravating course,
which should be measured in the future management of LBP in the healthcare sector. It is supposed that improved managing strategies among the health care workers contribute to a large extent to these results.”
