Work-Related Predictors of Sleep Quality in Chinese Nurses: Testing a Path Analysis Model

Conclusions/Implications for Practice Sleep quality in Chinese nurses is influenced directly and indirectly by various modifiable work-related factors. Interventions such as adjusting work shifts and reducing job burdens should be prioritized by administrative staff to ensure the sleep quality and clinical performance of Chinese nurses and to subsequently improve nursing care quality.

Authors: Sandler CX, Lloyd AR Abstract Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a prevalent condition affecting about one in 100 patients attending primary care. There is no diagnostic test, validated biomarker, clear pathophysiology or curative treatment. The core symptom of fatigue affects both physical and cognitive activities, and features a prolonged post-activity exacerbation triggered by tasks previously achieved without difficulty. Although several different diagnostic criteria are proposed, for clinical purposes only three elements are required: recognition of the typical fatigue; history and physical examination...
