Stroke is a major cause of morbidity, mortality and disability world-wide. The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 15 million people suffer from stroke annually; 5 million dies from stroke; and 5 million people are left disabled after a stroke event. Several potentially modifiable risk factors for stroke have been identified. Psychosocial work factors, such as stress, have been proposed to be a risk factor for stroke, but previous findings have been mixed.
You will learn:
- What we mean by psychosocial work environment and work stress
- The concept of the job demand-control (job strain) model
- Established risk factors for stroke
- The association between psychosocial work environment and risk for stroke
- Potential biological pathways between psychosocial work environment and stroke
