Reconeixements mèdics

Embed from Getty ImagesSe que és un estudi holandes, però potser alguna cosa en podem treure: Es va preguntar a una població de treballadors que en pensaven dels examens de salut als que eren sotmesos. El principal benefici  manifestat pels treballadors ha estat l’autocontrol sobre la seva salut i, per contra, han identificat com a principal inconvenient la interferència que, per part de l’organització o el seu cap, s’exerceix sobre la seva vida personal.  Els treballadors indiquen que els agradaria rebre ajut per part del metge del treball quan s’identifiqui un risc important per a la seva salut. Com a conclusió, ens indiquen que els empleats són ambivalents i no tenen clar el paper dels examens de salut en l’àmbit ocupacional.

I nosaltres, que som els professionals… que hem de dir?  Si els nostres propis “clients” no tenen clar el valor del nostre producte, que estem pensant per reinventar-nos? I si féssim aquesta mateixa pregunta als empresaris, per saber que esperen de la salut laboral? Aquí ho deixo…. (al peu trobareu l’abstract)

Damman OC, van der Beek AJ, Timmermans DR. Employees are ambivalent about health checks in the occupational setting. Occup Med (Lond). 2015 May 28. pii: kqv048. [Epub ahead of print]

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Employees are increasingly provided with preventive health checks. However, participation rates are low and several ethical issues arise, such as a potential perceived threat to autonomy and privacy.

AIMS:

To assess what employees think about preventive health checks in the occupational setting.

METHODS:

Samples of construction workers and the general working population in the Netherlands completed a survey about preventive healthchecks in the occupational setting. We asked half of each sample about potential benefits and drawbacks of health checks, and the other half about how they should be offered. We employed explorative factor analysis to identify constructs related to perceived benefits and drawbacks, and the wayhealth checks should be provided. We then conducted descriptive analyses and t-tests to compare subgroups of respondents.

RESULTS:

A total of 482 (27%) of construction workers and 738 (65%) employees from the general population responded. The overall survey response rate was 42% with 41% completing the first questionnaire and 42% the second. We identified three constructs related to perceived benefits and drawbacks: self-control over health, disturbance and negative emotion and lack of autonomy. Participants rated ‘self-control over health‘ as the highest potential benefit (mean = 3.40; SD = 0.69), and ‘your employer interfering in your personal life’ as the most important potential drawback (mean = 3.27; SD = 1.00). Participants indicated that they would like to receive help from their occupational physician when an increased health risk is identified (mean = 4.02; SD = 0.69).

CONCLUSIONS:

Employees are ambivalent and hesitant concerning preventive health checks in the occupational setting.
