In this study, the Karasek demand/control formulation of job strain, initially used in research on cardiovascular health, has been extended to drug use.
Full-time nurses (n=2375), all participants in a national anonymous mailed survey, were an estimated 1.5 times more likely to be a recent non-medical drug user if they had a high strain job as compared to nurses in low strain jobs.
The psychosocial work environment might influence whether nurses become and remain non-medical drug users, over and above the risk-modifying functions related to nurses'individual vulnerabilities and their greater access to controlled substances.
