RR24 - Review of existing supporting scientific knowledge to underpin standards of good practice for key work - related stressors: phase 1
Undertaken to identify the best available evidence on the ways
in which the following nine stressors affect individuals at work:
poorly designed/managed workload; poorly designed/managed work
scheduling; poorly designed/managed work design; poorly
designed/managed physical environment; lack of skill discretion;
lack of decision authority; lack of appropriate proactive support;
lack of appropriate reactive support; poorly designed/managed
procedures for eliminating damaging conflict at individual/ream
level (bullying/harassment).The overriding aim was to conduct the
review in as explicit and objective a manner as possible. To ensure
that this was the case, the review was, so far as was possible
conducted in line with principles of evidence based approaches:
i.e. a systematic way of pulling together and assessing the quality
of evidence around a given research question and making
recommendations for practice.
