Effectiveness of an Educational Program upon Knowledge of Nurses Regarding the Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders

Healthcare providers across various specialties are at risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) due to the demanding physical tasks they perform. These tasks often involve maintaining strained postures for extended periods, which can destabilize the osteoarticular system and negatively impact muscles and joints. To address this issue, it is crucial to raise awareness among nurses in intensive care units and operating rooms about proper patient and object handling and transfer techniques. This can be achieved through the development of coping mechanisms, educational programs, and the implementation of specific policies and procedures. By taking these steps, healthcare organizations can help to reduce the risk of MSDs among nurses and other healthcare providers, ensuring their well-being and ability to provide optimal patient care.
