How do older workers anticipate their transition to retirement? This question will be addressed based on recent data from the representative German lidA-Study. The focus of the presentation lies on nursing.
In Germany, most older workers want to leave employment much earlier than legal retirement age. The dominant reasons given indicate the wish for a self-determined life. Poor work and health problems rank 4th and 5th. Nurses would like to exit earlier than other professional groups with a stronger impact of poor work and health problems. Yet, this profession also exhibits resources. A new concept will be presented to promote longer working of older nurses in hospitals in Germany.

In a long-term study, the ZHAW School of Health Sciences examined the career trajectories of a cohort of nurses who graduated in 2011/12 in Switzerland. The project was part of the Competence Network Health Workforce CNHW, a cooperation between Universities of Applied Sciences in Health in Switzerland. Six years after graduation more than 600 nurses participated in the final survey, representing 38% of the 2011/12 cohort. The research highlights that the early years in a nursing career involve professional development and frequent job transitions. Potential retention measures include improving working conditions, addressing work-life balance issues, and increasing recognition.

Over 1700 healthcare professionals were surveyed during the 1st data collection of the SCOHPICA national cohort. In this talk, we will explore in more detail the socio-professional data gathered and investigate their relationship with well-being and turnover intention. We will also examine how various factors such as workload, available resources, meaning of work, burnout or recognition at work, among others, are associated with professionals’ intention to stay in the profession and well-being. These findings may open up promising pathways for enhancing the satisfaction and retention of healthcare professionals in Switzerland.

Besoin et offre en relève dans le domaine des soins: éclairage du rapport national sur le personnel de santé 2021

Dans le cadre de la série de colloques de la cohorte SCOHPICA (Swiss COhort of Health Professionals and Informal CAregivers), nous avons le plaisir de vous inviter à la conférence modérée par Prof Annie Oulevey Bachmann:

Thème:
Dans son troisième rapport national, l’Obsan fournit une estimation des besoins en personnel de soins et d’accompagnement à l’horizon 2029. Pour ces analyses, on considère non seulement l’évolution des besoins de la population mais également les départs à la retraite et sorties précoces de la profession. Grâce à l’intense activité de formation de ces dernières années, le taux de couverture des besoins de relève s’est amélioré mais un écart conséquent persiste entre l’offre et les besoins pour le personnel infirmier.

Intervenante:
Dre Clémence Merçay, Cheffe de projet scientifique, Obsan – CH.
