About the Edition

Nurses are at high risk for musculoskeletal damage and occupational injury. The high incidence of work-related musculoskeletal injury and absence from work in Canadian registered nurses points to the need for careful analysis and understanding of factors that influence successful return to work in this occupational group. Precarious employment may be an important factor influencing prognosis following musculoskeletal injury in nurses due to its known negative effect on the occupational health of individuals, and on cohesion and social relations in the workplace. In this applied ethnographic study, interviews with eight hospital-based nurses in precarious employment were conducted to learn about their experiences of musculoskeletal injury, rehabilitation, and return to work in a hospital-based Transitional Work Program. The results suggest that the model of return to work used by the hospital may be problematic in patient-focused health care settings, due to the professional ethos and workplace culture in nursing.
