We are organizing a Special Issue on the epidemiology and prevention of workplace health in the health care setting in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed, scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information about the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Workplace health promotion (WHP) has become a significant issue worldwide. Our main interest is on presenting a wide experience of epidemiological studies, as well as best practices concerning violence, injury, and stress in the health care sector.
Violence against Hospital health care worker (HCW) is an important issue during interactions with patients, their relatives or companions, and many authors recognize the phenomenon of violence at work is a specific risk factor predicting stress and possible stress-related pathologies in the health care sector.
On the other side, injuries among HCWs are a common occurrence, and there is a large space for improving the consequences of biological, chemical, and physical risk factors.
The Special Issue is open to contributions that focus on the aforementioned topics, as well as those that can present examples of stress management activities for HCWs, including (but not limited to) yoga, mindfulness, and tai-chi.
