Abstract:   (201 Views)
Background: It is widely accepted that providing women’s health is one of the main goals of healthcare systems. According to the literature, different factors such as demographic characteristics, occupational status, stress, culture, and epidemics can affect women’s health. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the health status of [S1] employed women and its association with the demographic characteristics of individuals.
Methods: This analytical, cross-sectional study was conducted on 325 women working in health centers of Guilan University of Medical Sciences in 2019.  After receiving informed consent, the subjects were chosen by random group sampling. Data were obtained using a general health questionnaire (GHQ). Data analysis was performed using Chi-square at a significant level of 0.05 in SPSS version 23.
Results: The mean age of the women was 42.10 ± 8.19 and 52.63% were nurses, 16.92% physicians, 19.39% midwives, and 11.7% health workers. Based on the results of the present study[S2] , 39.7% of the participants are suspected of having a health disorder and problem. According to the analysis, a significant relationship was observed between women’s health and variables of age (P≤0.0001), level of education (P=0.03), occupational status of spouse (P≤0.0001), income level (P=0.02), and place of residence (P≤0.0001). Nevertheless, no significant association was found between[S3]  women’s health and marital status, and place of birth.
Conclusion: Improving the health of healthcare staff requires special attention and appropriate supportive measures. Given the stressful conditions of healthcare staff, cognitive and behavioral interventions to improve work-life balance can enhance the performance of these individuals regarding patient care while promoting their welfare.
