Nurses’ work engagement and its impact on the job outcomes

International Journal of healthcare management

Work engagement has emerged as a key tool for ensuring patient safety and care quality. This study aimed to examine nurses’ perception of work engagement, to identify factors influencing nurses’ engagement with their work and to determine factors predicting job performance and turnover intention in multiple hospitals.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 535 nurses from three hospitals with different affiliation types in Minia, Egypt in a period from December 2018 to Jan 2019 who answered Utrecht work engagement scale (UWES-9), Job resources, job performance and Turnover intention questionnaire.

Results: The composite mean of work engagement was 4.4 (SD 1.3). About 54% of nurses reported high/very high work engagement levels. Work place, availability of motives and incentives and ability to make decisions (autonomy) were significant predictor of high work engagement levels among nurses. Work engagement accounted for a significant increment in explained variance in job performance and turnover intention (ß = 0.14 and −0.41) respectively.

Conclusion and Recommendations: More than half of nurses are dedicated to their work. It is necessary for them to have the needed resources, supportive environments, and performance feedback in order to balance between work demands and the feeling of ‘fulfillment' and reduced turnover rates.

Female genital mutilation: current awareness, believes and future intention in rural Egypt

December 2018 Reproductive Health 15(1)

Background: Female genital cutting, also termed female genital mutilation (FGM), is a damaging practice with no health benefits for girls or women, and is considered to be a violation of children's rights. Methods: A cross-sectional, community-based study using interview administered questionnaire to explore knowledge and attitude of people living in a rural area in Minia. Systematic random sampling was used to interview 618 males and females above the age of 18 in the period from September to November 2016. Results: FGM was performed on 76.6% of females, complications occurred in 35.6% of them. Females demonstrated a higher level of knowledge than males. Nearly 56% of respondents believed that this practice should continue. Females were more supportive of the continuation of FGM than men (60.3% vs. 47.9%). The attitude that FGM is a good practice, knowledge level, women's status and religion were significantly associated with women's willingness to subject their daughters to FGM in the future. Attitude was the only significant predictor associated with men's willingness to subject their daughters to FGM. Conclusion: The strong correlation between social pressure and intentions to carry out FGM means that FGM practice will continue to be embraced among future generations unless policies are put in place to eradicate this practice through empowering females by education and reasonable income.

Determinants of maternal adaptation to mentally disabled children in El Minia, Egypt.

East Mediterr Health J. 2010 Jul;16(7):759-64.

This study was carried out in a governmental school for mentally disabled children in El Minia. We assessed maternal adaptation and the relationship between maternal sociodemographic factors and adaptation as well as examining maternal distress. All 100 mothers with children aged 6-18 years attending the school were recruited in the study. Three tools were used: demographic data sheet, adaptation scale to assess the nature of mothers' interaction and patterns of psychosocial adaptation and depression scale to detect the presence of psychiatric disorders among the mothers. Only 35.0% of the mothers adapted positively to their child's condition; 62.9% of those had female children. Negatively adapted mothers were slightly older than positively adapted mothers and had more children. Maternal education and occupation were significantly associated with psychosocial adaptation. Knowledge of mothers about their child's condition significantly affected adaptation as well as the dependency of children in eating, drinking and sleeping. Two-thirds of mothers had high levels of psychopathology.
