Psychosocial Work Environment and Risk of Stroke

June 26, 2018 1:30AM

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.

In this webinar, Eleonor Fransson, PhD discusses how psychosocial factors such as stress can contribute to a higher risk for stroke in the workplace.
