  • [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] [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] 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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] The anatomy of absenteeism.
  • Based on comprehensive administrative register data from Norway, we examine the determinants of sickness absence behavior; in terms of employee characteristics, workplace characteristics, panel doctor characteristics, and economic conditions.
  • Key conclusions are that (i) most of the cross-sectional variation in absenteeism is caused by genuine employee heterogeneity;.

  • [Title] [Workplace bullying and sickness absenteeism].
  • 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.

  • [Title] The accuracy of nurses' estimates of their 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.

  • [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] A multifactorial approach to sickness absenteeism among nursing staff.
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze factors associated with self-reported sickness absenteeism among nursing workers.
  • Absenteeism was classified in three levels: no day, a few days (1-9 days) and many days (> 10 days), based on the answer to a question of the work ability index questionnaire.
  • RESULTS: The frequencies of sickness absenteeism were 20.3% and 16.6% for a few days and many days, respectively.
  • Those who reported more than one job, musculoskeletal diseases and rated their health as poor or regular had higher odds of absenteeism.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Different variables were associated with the two forms of absenteeism, which suggests its multiple and complex determination related to factors from different levels that cannot be exclusively explained by health problems.

  • [Title] Factors associated with absenteeism, presenteeism and activity impairment in patients in the first years of RA.
  • OBJECTIVES: To understand the impact of the early years of RA on all aspects of work productivity, and determine how this is related to clinical markers.
  • Previous research on work productivity has examined predominantly early retirement and absenteeism.
  • The impact of reduced work performance (presenteeism) and activity impairment is less well understood in early RA populations.
  • A questionnaire incorporating the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment (WPAI) instrument was administered with a number of clinical outcomes, including the Multidimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire (MD-HAQ) and scales for pain, fatigue and patient assessment of disease patient global assessment (PtGA).
  • Of the 92% patients working for pay, 19% reported missing work (absenteeism) in the past week due to their health, accounting for 46% of their working time.
  • Even while at work, ∼25% of actual hours was lost due to poor health, while outside work 33% of patients' regular daily activities were prevented.
  • In multivariate analyses, disease severity was associated with the presence of absenteeism, presenteeism and activity impairment.
  • Patients able to self-schedule their work had lower presenteeism and activity impairment.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Productivity loss is common in patients in the first years of RA who are in paid work and was associated with work characteristics and adverse clinical outcomes.

  • [Title] Alcohol consumption and workplace absenteeism: the moderating effect of social support.
  • Although it is commonly assumed that alcohol consumption has a significant impact on employee absenteeism, the nature of the alcohol-absence relationship remains poorly understood.
  • Proposing that alcohol impairment likely serves as a key mechanism linking drinking and work absence, we posit that this relationship is likely governed less by the amount of alcohol consumed and more by the way it is consumed.
  • In addition, consistent with both volitional treatments of absenteeism and social exchange theory, perceived coworker support was found to attenuate, and supervisory support to amplify, the link between the frequency of heavy episodic drinking and absenteeism.

  • [Title] State-level estimates of cancer-related absenteeism costs.
  • 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.
  • Absenteeism costs are approximately 6.5% of the costs of premature cancer mortality.

  • [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.

  • For the logistic regression model, the outcomes were work-related health problems and absenteeism.
  • RESULTS: Subcontractor employees were significantly more likely to experience health problems than the employee at parent firms.
  • In addition, subcontractor employees were three times more likely than employees at parent firms to miss work due to illness (OR=3.56; 95% CIs 2.02-6.26).
  • CONCLUSION: Subcontracting workers were found to have a higher risk of work-related diseases and a higher absenteeism rate than parent firm workers.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • [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.

  • 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] 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.

  • OBJECTIVES: Presenteeism is determined as turning up at work despite ill health.
  • Compared to absenteeism research data about presenteeism are comparatively rare.
  • The present study examines the degree of presenteeism and absenteeism among German hospital clinicians in surgery focussing on associations with psychosocial stress at work.
  • The frequencies of presenteeism and absenteeism were respectively assessed by one item.
  • Psychosocial stress at work was measured by the effort-reward imbalance model and the demand-control model.
  • Nearly two thirds were absent due to illness for a minimum of once a year.
  • Multivariate logistic regression analyses show that organisational and work-related factors are clearly associated with presenteeism.
  • Compared to absenteeism, presenteeism shows stronger associations with psychosocial workload.
  • CONCLUSION: Clinicians in surgery are affected by presenteesim to a high degree whereas rates of absenteeism are less striking.
  • As potential causes for elevated presenteeism different aspects of psychosocial stress at work were identified.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Few data exist related to the impact of breast cancer on work absenteeism and short-term disability.
  • Outcomes were days absent from work and days with short-term disability.
  • 856 and 2,668 patients were selected for absenteeism and short-term disability, respectively, with a mean age of 49 and 50 years.
  • Average number of absenteeism days was 35 and 21, and short-term disability days were 51 and 5, for cases and controls, respectively, within the post-index year (both P < 0.001).
  • Adjusted incremental costs for absenteeism and short-term disability were $1,911 and $6,157 (P < 0.001), respectively, per breast cancer patient per year.
  • This study suggests that breast cancer is associated with work-related productivity loss within the first year of diagnosis that may be a substantial cost to employers.

  • [Title] Explorative evaluation of the impact of severe premenstrual disorders on work absenteeism and productivity.
  • PURPOSE: To assess the effects of premenstrual disorders on work productivity and absenteeism in the multinational Impact study.
  • Work productivity impairment and absenteeism were assessed retrospectively using the Premenstrual Symptoms Screening Tool (PSST) and a modified version of the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment (WPAI) questionnaire.
  • Work productivity impairment was also assessed prospectively over 2 months using the DRSP questionnaire.
  • Women with moderate-to-severe PMS/PMDD had a higher rate of absenteeism (>8hours per cycle; 14.2% vs. 6.0%).
  • CONCLUSION: Moderate-to-severe PMS/PMDD seems to be associated with work productivity impairment and increased absenteeism, and thus poses a potential economic burden.

  • [Title] The association of pain with labor force participation, absenteeism, and presenteeism in Spain.
  • OBJECTIVES: The aims of this paper are to generate estimates of the association between the severity and frequency of pain in Spain and (i) labor force participation and workforce status and (ii) patterns of absenteeism and presenteeism for the employed workforce.
  • The impact of pain, categorized by severity and frequency, is assessed within a labor supply framework for (i) labor force participation and (ii) absenteeism and presenteeism.
  • RESULTS: The results demonstrate that severe and moderate pain has a significant, substantive, and negative association with labor force participation and, together with the experience of mild pain, a substantive impact on absenteeism and presenteeism within the employed workforce.
  • The experience of pain, notably severe and frequent pain, also outstrips the impact of other health status factors in absenteeism and presenteeism.
  • The contribution of moderate and mild pain to absenteeism and presenteeism is more marked than for labor force participation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The experience of pain, in particular severe daily pain, has a substantial negative impact both on labor force participation in Spain as well as reported absenteeism and presenteeism.
