  • [Title] 'Hormones' associated with 'Absenteeism Finding': Top Publications.
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'hormone' for 'absenteeism finding'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.

  • [Title] [Effective interventions to reduce absenteeism among hospital nurses].
  • [Transliterated title] Intervenciones eficaces para reducir el absentismo del personal de enfermería hospitalario.
  • OBJECTIVES: To select and summarize the interventions that have proved effective in reducing absenteeism among hospital nurses.
  • RESULTS: The implementation of multifaceted support or physical training programs can produce positive results in terms of reducing absenteeism among hospital nurses.
  • Establishing more flexible working shifts may also reduce absenteeism rates, although again studies with larger samples are needed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Absenteeism can be considered as a final result and a consequence of the level of job satisfaction.
  • The effectiveness of interventions to reduce absenteeism among hospital nurses will no doubt largely depend on the ability of these interventions to increase the job satisfaction of these workers.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] School absenteeism among children living with smokers.
  • We hypothesized that children exposed to tobacco smoke in the home would have increased school absenteeism with associated costs due to lost caregiver wages/time.
  • METHODS: We analyzed data on health and absenteeism among schoolchildren aged 6 to 11 years identified in the 2005 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS).
  • We used multivariate models to assess the relationships between adult-reported household smoking and child health and school absenteeism.
  • RESULTS: Children living with 1 or ≥ 2 adults who smoked in the home had 1.06 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.54-1.55) and 1.54 (95% CI: 0.95-2.12) more days absent from school per year, respectively, than children living with 0 smokers in the home.
  • Caregivers' time tending children absent from school was valued at $227 million per year.

  • [Title] Characteristics of zero-absenteeism in hospital care.
  • BACKGROUND: Literature on sickness presenteeism is emerging, but still little is known about employees who are never absent from work due to injuries or illness.
  • Personal attitudes and self-efficacy were more important in zero-absenteeism than social pressures of managers, colleagues or patients.
  • Zero-absentees were found to be intrinsically motivated to try attending work when ill.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the present study population of hospital employees, we found indications that zero-absenteeism and sickness presenteeism might be different types of work attendance.
  • Managers should realize that zero-absentees are driven by intrinsic motivation rather than social pressures to attend work.

  • AIM: To assess the relationship between workplace bullying and sickness absenteeism in a large sample of Italian workers.
  • SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: In all, 8,992 subjects filled in a questionnaire to detect workplace bullying, the presence of work stress factors and days of sickness absence in the last year.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The present study confirms that workers exposed to a workplace bullying reported higher sickness absenteeism as compared with non-exposed subjects, also when a potentially highly stressful work environment is considered.
  • Interventions to avoid workplace bullying not only favoure workers' health, but also avoid the company costs associated with workers' sickness absenteeism.

  • BACKGROUND: Research on nurses' absenteeism has often relied on self-reports of absence.
  • However, nurses may not be aware of their actual absenteeism, or they may underestimate it.
  • However, there is a difference in central tendency that is related to the majority of nurses in this study (51.1%) underestimating their days absent from work.
  • IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING MANAGEMENT: Feedback interventions to reduce absenteeism can be developed to include providing nurses with accurate information about their absence.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Organization, relational justice and absenteeism.
  • BACKGROUND: There is a need for more knowledge on how to manage companies towards healthier and more prosperous organizations with low levels of absenteeism.
  • OBJECTIVE: Organizational factors can help to explain why some companies have relatively low absenteeism rates, even though they are equal to other companies in many other aspects.
  • Consequently, a Relational Justice framework may be used to understand why some companies have a low incidence of absenteeism.
  • METHODS: Interviews were analyzed to explore whether the items representing the concept of Relational Justice can be used to further understand the strategies, procedures and structures that characterize organizations and management in companies with a low incidence of absenteeism.
  • RESULTS: Strategies, procedures or principles related to Relational Justice were common and highlighted in companies with an incidence of absenteeism.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results suggested that a Relational Justice framework could be used to increase understanding of the organizational and managerial factors typical for companies with a low incidence of absenteeism.
  • A Relational Justice approach to organizational management may be used to successfully lower absenteeism, change organizations and promote healthy and prosperous companies.

  • BACKGROUND: Cancer is one of the top five most costly diseases in the United States and leads to substantial work loss.
  • Nevertheless, limited state-level estimates of cancer absenteeism costs have been published.
  • Census Bureau for 2008, and the 2009 Current Population Survey, we used regression modeling to estimate annual state-level absenteeism costs attributable to cancer from 2004 to 2008.
  • RESULTS: We estimated that the state-level median number of days of absenteeism per year among employed cancer patients was 6.1 days and that annual state-level cancer absenteeism costs ranged from $14.9 million to $915.9 million (median = $115.9 million) across states in 2010 dollars.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Health related absenteeism: methodological comparison].
  • The article compares three methods and approaches for analysing professional absenteeism:.
  • (1) the empirical method which consists in carrying out statistical analyses on work absentee data, (2) the explanatory method which aims at testing and establishing correlations between absenteeism related to illness and other potential factors, and (3) the clinical method which consists in carrying out an in-depth study of the employees concerned and their work situation and conditions.
  • Namely, the study highlights the empirical and explanatory methods which appear foremost to be most effective in bringing new knowledge to the study of absenteeism, in as much as the clinical approach constitutes a mechanism and means for bringing about change in problematic organisational situations from the perspective of occupational health.
  • Occupational health policies that aim at reducing absenteeism would certainly benefit from a complementary implementation of all three approaches.

  • [Title] Presenteeism and absenteeism: differentiated understanding of related phenomena.
  • In the past it was assumed that work attendance equated to performance.
  • It now appears that health-related loss of productivity can be traced equally to workers showing up at work as well as to workers choosing not to.
  • Presenteeism in the workplace, showing up for work while sick, seems now more prevalent than absenteeism.
  • These findings are forcing organizations to reconsider their approaches regarding regular work attendance.
  • Given this, and echoing recommendations in the literature, this study seeks to identify the main behavioral correlates of presenteeism and absenteeism in the workplace.
  • Comparative analysis of the data from a representative sample of executives from the Public Service of Canada enables us to draw a unique picture of presenteeism and absenteeism with regards not only to the impacts of health disorders but also to the demographic, organizational, and individual factors involved.
  • These findings provide food for thought and may pave the way to the development of new organizational measures designed to manage absenteeism without creating presenteeism.

  • [Title] Effects of absenteeism feedback and goal-setting interventions on nurses' fairness perceptions, discomfort feelings and absenteeism.
  • AIM: A longitudinal field experiment was conducted to test the effects of absenteeism feedback and goal-setting interventions on nurses' (1) fairness perceptions, (2) discomfort feelings and (3) absenteeism.
  • Nurses' obstacles to reducing absenteeism were also explored.
  • BACKGROUND: Absenteeism is a significant issue in health care and there is a need to avoid interventions that are seen to be negative, punitive or lead to sick nurses coming to work.
  • (1) absenteeism feedback with individual goal-setting, (2) absenteeism feedback with group goal-setting, or (3) no intervention, and were asked questions about how they could reduce their absenteeism.
  • RESULTS: There was a significant decrease in the total number of days absent but no decrease in absent episodes, and a significant effect on fairness perceptions and discomfort feelings for the nurses in the absenteeism feedback conditions.
  • Six categories of obstacles to reducing absenteeism were identified.
  • IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING MANAGEMENT: The study's interventions may lead to a reduction in absence without the negative outcomes of a harsh absenteeism policy.

  • Data about the prevalence of school absenteeism and its correlation with emotional and behavioural problems in Germany is scarce, in particular regarding excused absenteeism.
  • 4.1% of the pupils reported to have missed school without a valid excuse on more than four days per month (unexcused absenteeism).
  • 6.1% had missed school having an excuse on more than ten days per month (excused absenteeism).
  • Both, unexcused and excused absenteeism, showed an increase of emotional and behavioural problems dependent on the intensity of absenteeism.
  • In conclusion, these findings show the relevance of school absenteeism in Germany.
  • In the future, more attention should be given to pupils with also excused absenteeism.

  • [Title] Sickness presenteeism today, sickness absenteeism tomorrow? A prospective study on sickness presenteeism and future sickness absenteeism.
  • OBJECTIVE: To prospectively investigate whether sickness presenteeism (SP), ie, going to work despite illness, has an impact on future sickness absenteeism.
  • RESULTS: SP on more than five occasions during the baseline year (2000) was a statistically significant risk factor for future sick leave (2002 and 2003) of more than 30 days among both populations even after adjusting for previous sick leave, health status, demographics, lifestyle, and work-related variables (2002, public sector, relative risk = 1.40; private sector, relative risk = 1.51).
  • CONCLUSIONS: SP may be an important phenomenon to consider when evaluating measures aimed at decreasing sickness absenteeism because more SP may lead to future sickness absence.

  • Workplace injustice included the experience of discrimination, violence, or harassment, and occupational health was measured as self-reported health problems and absenteeism.
  • Both male and female workers who experienced any workplace injustice (i.e., discrimination, harassment, or violence) reported approximately two- to threefold increased risk for physical and mental health problems (i.e., backaches, muscular pain, stomach pain, overall fatigue, headaches, anxiety/depression, sleeping problems, and injury) and absenteeism due to accidents or due to health problems.
  • CONCLUSION: Perceived injustice at work was significantly associated with an increased risk of occupational disease and absenteeism for Korean wage employees.

  • OBJECTIVES: Our work aims to: - assess occupational disability for medical reasons in hospitals across the entire work stoppages substantiated by a medical certificate, - to identify the reasons - and describe the causes and medical certificates responsible for this phenomenon.
  • We recorded 331 medical certificates off work reported by our study population.
  • The rate of medical absenteeism in the hospital surroundings is estimated at 7,68% with a predominance of medical absences related to illness (98%) against only 2% for those related to accidents with a male predominance (5%) containing 1% for females.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results can be used in a preventive perspective to improve the professional environment and therefore reduce the incidence of medical absenteeism.

  • [Title] Understanding estimated worker absenteeism rates during an influenza pandemic.
  • OBJECTIVES: Published employee absenteeism estimates during an influenza pandemic range from 10 to 40 percent.
  • The purpose of this study was to estimate daily employee absenteeism through the duration of an influenza pandemic and to determine the relative impact of key variables used to derive the estimates.
  • DESIGN: Using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's FluWorkLoss program, the authors estimated the number of absent employees on any given day over the course of a simulated 8-week pandemic wave by using varying attack rates.
  • Employee data from a university with a large academic health system were used.
  • The highest (peak) daily absenteeism estimate was 5.8 percent (minimum 4.8 percent; maximum 7.4 percent).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The impact of an influenza pandemic on employee availability may be less than originally thought, even with a high attack rate.

  • [Title] Lost productivity in four European countries among patients with rheumatic disorders: are absenteeism and presenteeism transferable?
  • In addition to those regarding lost productivity, the questionnaire contained questions about patient characteristics, disability insurance, disease characteristics, quality of life and job characteristics as these variables are expected to influence lost productivity in terms of absenteeism and presenteeism.
  • The data were analysed by regression analyses, in which different components - being absent in last 3 months, number of days absent and presenteeism - of lost productivity were the main outcome measures and other variables, such as gender, impact of disease, shift work, job control, partial disability and overall general health, were corrected for.
  • A significant influence of country of residence was found on the variables 'being absent in the last three months', 'number of days absent' and 'quality of work on the last working day'.
  • However, country did not influence 'quantity of work on the last working day' and 'overall presenteeism on the last working day'.
  • CONCLUSION: It can be concluded that country has a significant influence on lost productivity among patients with rheumatic disorders, when corrected for other variables that have an influence on absenteeism and presenteeism.

  • [Title] Employee absenteeism measures reflecting current work practices may be instrumental in a re-evaluation of the relationship between psychological distress/mental health and absenteeism.
  • Absenteeism rates are the cornerstone metrics guiding corporate policy for health care investment in employees.
  • However, traditional absenteeism measures do not reflect the contemporary workplace milieu.
  • It is accepted practice that employees work evenings or weekends to makeup time.
  • Using a hours-based absenteeism measure, that accounts for time made-up as well as time lost, this paper evaluates the impact of psychological distress on employee absenteeism.Psychological distress and absenteeism data were collected from 54,264 full-time employees.
  • Consistent with traditional approaches, employees indicated how many days they were absent.
  • Hours based absenteeism was formulated from the ratio of how many hours the employees worked and how many hours were they expected to work in the past seven-days.Concordant with previous concinnous evidence, traditional absenteeism computation indicated that elevated psychological distress is associated with increasing absenteeism.
  • Using the hours-based method psychological distress did not significantly influence absenteeism.Traditional calculations of absenteeism do not reflect the current work practices of the majority of employees.
  • Employees with psychological distress may take time off work but it appears that they make up for lost time possibly to stay up to speed with task driven occupations and avoid performance review.

  • [Title] Osteoarthritis and absenteeism costs: evidence from US National Survey Data.
  • OBJECTIVE: This study seeks to quantify the effects of osteoarthritis on the cost of absenteeism from work.
  • METHODS: This study performs multivariable analyses to examine the relationships between osteoarthritis and annual cost to employers that is associated with absenteeism.
  • The cost is measured as the probability of absenteeism, days missed from work, and their dollar values, all indirect costs.
  • RESULTS: Osteoarthritis leads to a significantly higher probability of absenteeism and more days missed from work.
  • Osteoarthritis increases annual per capita absenteeism costs by $469 for female workers and by $520 for male workers.
  • Aggregate annual absenteeism costs are $10.3 billion (women = $5.5 billion; men = $4.8 billion).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Aggregate annual absenteeism costs of osteoarthritis are quite substantial as measured by the probability of absenteeism, days missed from work, and their dollar values, compared with other major chronic diseases.

  • [Title] How do physical activity, sports, and dietary restraint relate to overweight-associated absenteeism?
  • OBJECTIVE: To examine the possible effects of physical activity, sports, and restrained eating on the relationship between overweight and absenteeism.
  • These data were then coupled with data from the company's absenteeism register.
  • RESULTS: Physical activity and sports acted as moderator variables in that they both attenuated the positive relationship between overweight and/or obesity and absenteeism.
  • Restrained eating also moderated the relationship between overweight and absenteeism.
  • Remarkably, the degree of overweight was more strongly related to augmented absenteeism in people with higher levels of restrained eating.
  • CONCLUSION: To reduce absenteeism in overweight employees, it may be beneficial to focus on stimulating physical activity and not on interventions aimed at promoting dieting (restrained eating).

  • [Title] Aversive workplace conditions and absenteeism: taking referent group norms and supervisor support into account.
  • Past research reveals inconsistent findings regarding the association between aversive workplace conditions and absenteeism, suggesting that other, contextual factors may play a role in this association.
  • Extending contemporary models of absence, we draw from the social identity theory of attitude-behavior relations to examine how peer absence-related norms and leader support combine to explain the effect of aversive workplace conditions on absenteeism.
  • Using a prospective design and a random sample of transit workers, we obtained results indicating that perceived job hazards and exposure to critical incidents are positively related to subsequent absenteeism, but only under conditions of more permissive peer absence norms.
  • Moreover, this positive impact of peer norms on absenteeism is amplified among employees perceiving their supervisor to be less supportive and is attenuated to the point of nonsignificance among those viewing their supervisor as more supportive.

  • [Title] Good ergonomics and team diversity reduce absenteeism and errors in car manufacturing.
  • Prior research suggests that ergonomics work design and mixed teams (in age and gender) may compensate declines in certain abilities of ageing employees.
  • This study investigates simultaneous effects of both team level factors on absenteeism and performance (error rates) over one year in a sample of 56 car assembly teams (N = 623).
  • Results show that age was related to prolonged absenteeism and more mistakes in work planning, but not to overall performance.
  • In comparison, high-physical workload was strongly associated with longer absenteeism and increased error rates.
  • Furthermore, controlling for physical workload, age diversity was related to shorter absenteeism, and the presence of females in the team was associated with shorter absenteeism and better performance.
  • In summary, this study suggests that both ergonomics work design and mixed team composition may compensate age-related productivity risks in manufacturing by maintaining the work ability of older employees and improving job quality.

  • [Title] Student nurse absenteeism in higher education: An argument against enforced attendance.
  • Unauthorised student nurse absenteeism in higher education troubles many university lecturers.
  • Anecdotally, absenteeism is occasionally raised as an issue by attending students who resent others "getting away" with non-attendance and some policy documents appear to suggest that attendance should be mandated.
  • Drawing on a range of nursing and non-nursing material we here discuss some of the literature on attendance, absenteeism, effort or time spent in study and grade attainment.
  • We propose that responses to absenteeism cannot be separated from questions of 'harm' and we suggest that lecturers should refrain from associating non-attendance with unprofessional behaviour and poor professionalization.

  • [Title] Statistical estimates of absenteeism attributable to seasonal and pandemic influenza from the Canadian Labour Force Survey.
  • The objective of this study was to estimate absenteeism rates and hours lost due to seasonal influenza and compare these estimates with estimates of absenteeism attributable to the two H1N1 pandemic waves that occurred in 2009.
  • METHODS: Key absenteeism variables were extracted from Statistics Canada's monthly labour force survey (LFS).
  • Absenteeism and the proportion of hours lost due to own illness or disability were modelled as a function of trend, seasonality and proxy variables for influenza activity from 1998 to 2009.
  • Absenteeism rates due to influenza were estimated at 12% per year for seasonal influenza over the 1997/98 to 2008/09 seasons, and 13% for the two H1N1/09 pandemic waves.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study confirms that absenteeism due to seasonal influenza has typically ranged from 5% to 20%, with higher rates associated with multiple circulating strains.
  • Absenteeism rates for the 2009 pandemic were similar to those occurring for seasonal influenza.

  • [Title] The impact of school building conditions on student absenteeism in Upstate New York.
  • OBJECTIVES: We investigated Upstate New York school building conditions and examined the associations between school absenteeism and building condition problems.
  • METHODS: We merged data from the 2005 Building Condition Survey of Upstate New York schools with 2005 New York State Education Department student absenteeism data at the individual school level and evaluated associations between building conditions and absenteeism at or above the 90th percentile.
  • RESULTS: After adjustment for confounders, student absenteeism was associated with visible mold (odds ratio [OR]=2.22; 95% confidence interval [CI]=1.34, 3.68), humidity (OR=3.07; 95% CI=1.37, 6.89), poor ventilation (OR=3.10; 95% CI=1.79, 5.37), vermin (OR=2.23; 95% CI=1.32, 3.76), 6 or more individual building condition problems (OR=2.97; 95% CI=1.84, 4.79), and building system or structural problems related to these conditions.
  • Schools in lower socioeconomic districts and schools attended by younger students showed the strongest associations between poor building conditions and absenteeism.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We found associations between student absenteeism and adverse school building conditions.

  • [Title] Associates of school absenteeism in adolescents with sickle cell disease.
  • BACKGROUND: Despite high rates of school absenteeism in adolescents with sickle cell disease (SCD), the issue remains understudied.
  • Potential associates of school absenteeism in adolescents with SCD include demographic (age, income), psychosocial (IQ, self-efficacy, competence, internalizing symptoms, negative thinking), and health-related (hemoglobin, health-care utilization, pain, disease knowledge).
  • Using school records, absenteeism was the percent of school days missed in the previous year.
  • Correlations tested associates of absenteeism and linear regression tested a model of absenteeism.
  • Health-related and psychosocial variables, but not demographic variables, correlated with absenteeism.
  • Attendance at clinic appointments and parent-reported teen pain frequency were significant associates of absenteeism in the regression model.
  • Absenteeism was positively related to current academic goals and health-related hindrance of academic goals, and negatively related to future-oriented academic goals.
  • CONCLUSIONS: School absenteeism is a significant problem for adolescents with SCD despite the presence of academic goals.

  • [Title] Weight change and workplace absenteeism in the HealthWorks study.
  • OBJECTIVE: Little is known about the relationship between weight change and workplace absenteeism.
  • The purpose of this study was to examine the degree to which weight change predicted 2-year absenteeism.
  • The difference in absenteeism ranged from (mean ± SE) 3.2 ± 1.2 days among healthy weight employees who maintained their weight to 6.6 ± 1.1 days among obese employees who gained weight (and slightly higher among healthy weight employees who lost weight).
  • The adjusted model also indicated that participants who were male, not depressed, nonsmokers, and had lower baseline absenteeism had significantly less workplace absenteeism relative to participants who were female, depressed, smokers, and had higher baseline absenteeism.
  • CONCLUSION: Absenteeism was generally low in this sample, but healthy weight employees who maintained their body weight over 2 years had the fewest number of sick days.

  • OBJECTIVE: To estimate the impact of medication adherence on absenteeism and short-term disability among employees with chronic disease.
  • METHODS: Cross-sectional analysis of administrative health care claims, absenteeism, and short-term disability data using multivariate regression and instrumental variable models for five cohorts of employees: diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure, dyslipidemia, and asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
  • RESULTS: Adherent employees with diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease realized between 1.7 and 7.1 fewer days absent from work and between 1.1 and 5.0 fewer days on short-term disability.
  • Absenteeism and short-term disability days by adherent employees with congestive heart failure were not significantly different from nonadherent employees with the condition in most specifications.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Appropriate management of chronic conditions can help employers minimize losses due to missed work.

  • [Title] School absenteeism and mental health among sexual minority youth and heterosexual youth.
  • Adolescent school absenteeism is associated with negative outcomes such as conduct disorders, substance abuse, and dropping out of school.
  • Mental health factors, such as depression and anxiety, have been found to be associated with increased absenteeism from school.
  • Sexual minority youth (youth who are attracted to the same sex or endorse a gay, lesbian, or bisexual identity) are a group at risk for increased absenteeism due to fear, avoidance, and higher rates of depression and anxiety than their heterosexual peers.
  • The results demonstrate that sexual minority status and mental health are important factors to consider when assessing school absenteeism and when developing interventions to prevent or reduce school absenteeism among adolescents.

  • [Title] The role of organisational justice, burnout and commitment in the understanding of absenteeism in the Canadian healthcare sector.
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to integrate Greenberg's perspective on the connection between injustice and stress in order to clarify the role of organisational justice, burnout and organisational commitment in the understanding of absenteeism.
  • RESEARCH LIMITATIONS/IMPLICATIONS: In spite of the non-longitudinal nature of this study, the results suggest that the stress model and the medical model best explain the relationship between organisational injustice and absenteeism, while the withdrawal model via organisational commitment is not associated in this study with absenteeism.
  • PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Healthcare managers should consider the possibility of better involving employees in the decision-making process in order to increase their perception of procedural and interactional justice, and indirectly reduce exhaustion and absenteeism through a greater perception of distributive justice.
  • SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS: For the healthcare sector, the need to reduce absenteeism is particularly urgent because of budget restrictions and the shortage of labour around the world.

  • [Title] Absenteeism among medical and health science undergraduate students at Hawassa University, Ethiopia.
  • BACKGROUND: Student absenteeism is a major concern for university education worldwide.
  • This study was conducted to determine the prevalence and causes of absenteeism among undergraduate medical and health sciences students at Hawassa University.
  • The primary outcome indicator was self-reported absenteeism from lectures in the semester preceding the study period.
  • The association between class absenteeism and socio-demographic and behavioral correlates of absenteeism was determined by bivariate and multivariate analyses.
  • There was a significant association between missing more than 8 lectures and age of students, chosen discipline (medicine), and social drug use.
  • The main reasons reported for missing lectures were preparing for another examination, lack of interest, lecturer's teaching style, and availability of lecture material.
  • CONCLUSION: At Hawassa University College of Medicine and Health Science student habits and teacher performance play a role in absenteeism from lectures.

  • In this study, the cross-sectional association of paid work hours with episodes of work absence was examined in a cohort of police officers.
  • Among 395 study participants with complete data, day-by-day work history records during the one-year period prior to date of examination were used to determine episodes of one-day and three day work absence.
  • The Negative binomial regression analysis was used to examine rate ratios (RR) of work absence.
  • A one-hour increase in total work hours was associated with 5% reduction in rate of one-day work absence (RR = 0.95, 95% CI: 0.92 - 0.98) and with 8% reduction in rate of three-day work absence (RR = 0.92, 95% CI: 0.89 - 0.95).
  • The association of total work hours with episodes of one-day work absence was significant only in men while the association with episodes of three-day work absence was evident in men and women.
  • In conclusion, in this cohort of police officers, work hours were negatively associated with both durations of work absence (one-day, > or = 3 consecutive days).

  • This article examines the association of consistent assignment of nurse aides with turnover and absenteeism.
  • Multivariate logistic regression models were used to examine turnover and absenteeism.
  • Nursing homes using recommended levels of consistent assignment had significantly lower rates of turnover and of absenteeism.
  • In the multivariate analyses, consistent assignment was significantly associated with both lower turnover and lower absenteeism (p < .01).

  • [Title] Relationship between school absenteeism and depressive symptoms among adolescents with juvenile fibromyalgia.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe school absences in adolescents with Juvenile Primary Fibromyalgia Syndrome (JPFS) and examine the relationship between school absenteeism, pain, psychiatric symptoms, and maternal pain history.
  • Those enrolled in regular school missed 2.9 days per month on average, with one-third of participants missing more than 3 days per month.
  • Pain and maternal pain history were not related to school absenteeism.
  • Long-term risks associated with school absenteeism and the importance of addressing psychological factors are discussed.
