We are pleased to announce the Special Issue on “Occupational Exposure to Psychosocial Factors in Nursing Profession”, which we are editing in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
As a consequence of the changes in organizations and of the current globalization processes, the exposure to psychosocial factors in the professional sphere has been more frequent and intense. When these are adverse to the development of the professional activity and the individual's quality of life, they turn into a higher level of stress, burnout, health disorders, and mental symptoms among healthcare professionals. In particular, in the last two decades, there has been a growing concern with the effects of psychosocial factors on nursing professionals, which represent the most numerous group of health professionals who deliver care to patients 24 hours per day.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish original, high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances in psychosocial factors prevention in the workplace and the promotion of nurses’ mental health and well-being. We particularly welcome papers on policy impact, studies with strong implications for practice, and researchers from different theoretical and methodological perspectives in order to advance knowledge and practice in the field of psychosocial factors.
