Resumen

GRILLO, Luciane Peter et al. Risk and protective factors for the development of chronic diseases in nurses. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2018, vol.serIV, n.18, pp.63-71. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV18007.

Background: Nurses are at risk of developing chronic diseases because of their long work hours and shift work. Objective: To identify the risk and protective factors for the development of chronic diseases in nurses based on their work shifts. Methodology: A questionnaire composed of sociodemographic questions and questions on risk and protective factors for the development of chronic noncommunicable diseases was applied to nurses working at a university hospital. Results: The sample was composed of 75 professionals, mostly women (87%), married/cohabiting (56%). The night shift nurses’ body mass index was significantly higher than that of day shift nurses (p = 0.045). With regard to the risk factors for chronic diseases, a significantly higher prevalence of smokers was found in the night shift (p = 0.034). Conclusion: The results can contribute to the development of strategies for improving the adherence to healthy habits and promoting better living and working conditions for nurses.
