Long haul truck drivers’ views on the barriers and facilitators to healthy eating and physical activity: A qualitative study

International Journal of Workplace Health Management

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore truck drivers’ views toward diet, physical activity, and health care access to inform the development of a weight loss intervention. Design/methodology/approach – The authors conducted four focus groups via teleconference (one) or in person (three). Each focus group included eight to ten truck drivers. Sessions were digitally recorded and transcribed. The authors used thematic analysis of the participant responses to develop themes and subthemes. Findings – Truck drivers desired good health, however, many knowledge gaps were identified. Drivers were aware of some healthy foods, but lacked knowledge of appropriate energy intake and healthy weight. Drivers expressed many barriers to eating healthy food and engaging in physical activity on the road. Participants suggested strategies and resources to improve their diet and increase physical activity. Research limitations/implications – This qualitative study included a convenience sample of 30 long-haul truck drivers. Consensus of themes and subthemes was achieved by four sessions. Issues facing long-haul truck drivers may be different than other truck drivers. Additional qualitative research should be conducted along with interventions focussed on healthy behaviors that can be implemented in the mobile working environment. Originality/value – This is the first focus group study of truck drivers that targets eating and physical activity. Future weight loss intervention designs should address the lack of knowledge and skills. To succeed, interventions should implement strategies to address perceived barriers: access, time limitations, and high cost of healthy lifestyle habits.

Recommended Opioid Prescribing Practices for Use in Chronic Non-Malignant Pain: A Systematic Review of Treatment Guidelines

Journal of Managed Care Medicine . 2011, Vol. 14 Issue 3, p52-58. 7p.

Journal of Managed Care Medicine

Objective: To systematically review and summarize recommendations from quality clinical practice guidelines for the management of chronic non-malignant pain (CNMP) with opioid medications using a standardized quality assessment tool. Methods: Clinical practice guidelines were identified through systematic literature searches to identify practice guidelines for the use of opioids in CNMP disorders published from 1990 to 2010. Guidelines were analyzed for quality using the AGREE II tool. Treatment recommendations were extracted and summarized from guidelines meeting quality inclusion criteria to provide a comprehensive list of recommendations for common clinical decision points. Results: Six clinical guidelines meeting inclusion criteria were identified. Evidence supporting efficacy for use of opioids as treatment for CNMP is limited. For practitioners considering opioid use, 20 practice recommendations for opioid management are summarized. The majority of treatment recommendations are based on expert consensus rather than quality evidence. Conclusion: Opioids for CNMP should be reserved for select patients with moderate or severe pain that significantly affects function or quality of life. Continuation of opioid therapy is indicated if documentation supports the opioid results in improvement of those limitations. If opioid therapy is indicated, recommendations for managing therapy include a comprehensive pre-treatment assessment, identification of contraindications, obtaining informed consent, establishing a written treatment plan with goals and objectives, using an opioid treatment agreement, obtaining specialist referral when indicated, and establishing a follow-up plan that includes monitoring for adverse effects, titration and rotation of medication, prescription use monitoring, use of drug screening and thorough record keeping that includes documentation of functional improvement.
