return to the workplace
The investigation determined what on-the-job training they desired vis-à-vis the problems they experienced upon their return in order to aid in their smooth return to the workplace.
The respondent to this questionnaire survey were fifteen general hospital nurses. They were granted maternity and child care leave between April １, ２００１ and March ３１, ２００５ and returned to their workplace in January, ２００６.
Those nurses desired training relating to changes made to computer systems during their leaves, information and on ailments and the associated treatments relevant to their newly assigned posts. Therefore, hospitals with such personnel may find it advantageous to have the nurses’ administration office conduct training, and plan and conduct such training specific to each post for their nursing staff when their granted leave is ended and they wish to return their former workplace in order to enable the smooth return of such staff.
