What is performance at work?

Findings from a recent study support the argument that performance at work includes a series of skills and behaviours, at every stage of the working life, that are highly desirable and relevant. It seems highly likely that good performance at work, especially in this sense, needs to be fostered not only during schooling, but also from earliest years of life.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What are the signs of performance at work?

The current case suggests that there is no definitive sign of performance at work in a small peripheral medical emergency department. There is a shortage of evidence to guide clinicians in managing these visits to the emergency department and the current evidence on this topic is poor quality with many methodological flaws. The study demonstrates the need for future research with more appropriately designed studies focussing on the effectiveness of a management package in the emergency setting. Results from a recent paper highlight the value of using a management package rather than a 'hands on' approach by clinicians, particularly during emergencies.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for performance at work?

Most of the clinicians surveyed (68%) considered themselves likely to treat patients who could work if they were able to do so. Most respondents said that their patients rarely thought of PBI when they made the decision about clinical trials. There was no correlation between perceived clinical trial burden and perceived performance at work from patients with PBI.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Is mindfulness typically used in combination with any other treatments?

Mindfulness is traditionally used as a standalone therapy (e.g., mindfulness meditation), but it can be used in conjunction with other treatments including cognitive-behavioral approaches, relaxation training, exercise-based treatments, psycho-education, and psychotherapy. It is proposed that mindfulness merits greater investigation in the form of clinical studies, randomized controlled trials (RCTs).

What is the latest research for performance at work?

There is limited, yet valuable, evidence about the effects of performance on psychosocial outcomes of working adults with multiple sclerosis (MS). There is a lack of research on what contextual characteristics may influence whether performance at work is beneficial or detrimental in the long term. In addition, the evidence about the effectiveness in sustaining MS symptoms and reducing fatigue is inconsistent; some show benefit, while others show no benefit. If a patient is at risk of becoming fatigued, it is important to consider the environmental and psychosocial factors that may reduce their performance at work, including fatigue and disability status, which also are significant factors in MS.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Does mindfulness improve quality of life for those with performance at work?

Based on the results of this study, we conclude that mindfulness meditation has no beneficial effect on improving quality of life of workers. Thus, it is also necessary for workers to practice other lifestyle choices such as regular exercise, smoking cessation and sleeping at a correct sleeping time.

Anonymous Patient Answer
