Abstract

Objective: To identify the correlation between nursing supervision and low back pain (LBP) preventive behavior among nursing staff at the hospital. Method: Quantitative research using cross-sectional design. The respondents were 141 nursing staff members working at inpatient care facilities and outpatient care units of the non-psychiatric departments of Marzoeki Mahdi Hospital. Samples were taken using total sampling. The instruments used in this research were nursing supervision questionnaires and LBP preventive behavior instruments. Result: A Chi-square test with an (α ≤ 0.050) level of significance indicates that there is a significant correlation between nursing supervision and LBP preventive behavior among nursing staff at the hospital (p = 0.015); OR = 2.440. Bivariate analysis shows that there is no significant correlation between respondents’ characteristics (sex, age, body mass index (BMI), and self-efficacy) and LBP preventive behavior. Conclusion: The results of this research may serve as a recommendation for more intensive LBP preventive behavior among nursing staff through rigorous nursing supervision.
