Healthcare Workers' Willingness to Work During an Influenza Pandemic: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Aoyagi, Y., Beck, C., Dingwall R., and Nguyen-Van-Tam, J. (2015). Healthcare Workers' Willingness to Work During an Influenza Pandemic: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses. 9(3):120-30.

The authors reviewed literature through to 2013 that discussed healthcare workers’ willingness to work during an influenza pandemic, and found that willingness to work ranged from 23.1% to 95.8%, depending on the context. Male gender, physicians and nurses, full-time employment, perceived personal safety, awareness of pandemic risk and clinical knowledge of influenza pandemics, role-specific knowledge, pandemic response training, and confidence in personal skills were statistically significantly associated with increased willingness. Childcare obligations were significantly associated with decreased willingness.
