Estimating the prevalence of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) among nurses

  [ 26 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]

The present study assessed the prevalence of chronic fatigue
syndrome (CFS) in a sample of nurses. There is a paucity of
studies on the prevalence of CFS in healthcare professionals.
Two samples of nurses were recruited through mailed
questionnaires. Data were collected on demographic
characteristics and symptoms. In addition from the sample,
those nurses with CFS-like symptoms were more comprehensively
evaluated using a structured clinical interview and reviewing
their medical records. A physician review team estimated the
prevalence of CFS to be 1,088 per 100,000. These findings
suggest that nurses might represent a high-risk group for this
illness, possibly due to occupational stressors such as
exposure to viruses in the work setting, stressful shift work
that is disruptive to biologic rhythms, or to other possible
stressors in the work settings (e.g., accidents).
