Processes, barriers and facilitators to implementation of a participatory ergonomics program among eldercare workers
This study aimed to investigate the processes of a participatory ergonomics program among 594 eldercare workers with emphasis on identified risk factors for low back pain and solutions, and reveal barriers and facilitators for implementation.
