Study of workload and time spent by nurses. 23/11/2018 - 31/12/2019

Abstract

This research aims to objectively map the time spent by nurses in five different settings (home care, residential care centres and in hospitals on geriatric, surgical and internist services), supplemented by a self-reporting questionnaire on the perceived workload and workload. This set-up makes it possible to map the link between the time spent and the experienced workload and workload. During this research, the following research questions will be answered: - How does the time spent by nurses influence their experienced workload and workload in home care? - How does the time spent by nurses influence their experienced workload and workload in residential care centres? - How does the time spent by nurses influence their experienced workload and workload on geriatric services in hospitals? - How does the time spent by nurses influence their experienced workload and workload on surgical services in hospitals? - How does the time spent by nurses influence their experienced workload and workload on internist services in hospitals? This study also provides insight into the following questions: - How much time do nurses spend on their professional duties and how is their working time filled in? - How is this time divided over the day and week cycle? - How does the context play a role (degree of social interaction, locations, ...)? - Are there differences in terms of gender, employment status, organisation, experience, etc.?
