Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, July 23, 2016 and Sunday, July 24, 2016: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship among personality traits, the intensity of stress, and Yang-Xu body constitution among adult intensive care unit (ICU) nurses. Methods: 'A cross-sectional survey was conducted and 202 adult ICU nurses were recruited from four hospitals in central Taiwan. 'A questionnaire with good reliability and validity was used.'The questionnaire includes the Chinese version of Eysenck'personality traits Questionnaire-Revised Short Scale (CEPQ-RS), the intensity of stress, the Yang-Xu body constitution Questionnaire (BCQ+),and demographic data. 'The internal consistency values of the personality traits, intensity of stress, and Yang-Xu constitution scales were 0.77-0.78, 0.93, and 0.93 using Cronbach?s Alpha coefficient.'The BCQ+ questionnaire aims to assess the energy level of bodily functions. Results: 'All data were statistical analyzed using the SPSS 19.0 statistical software. 'The mean age of the 202 participants was 27.82'4.87. Approximate half (52.2%) of the ICU nurses reported a working duration of less than 6 years. 'The average score of Yang-Xu constitution was 42.09, with 151 participants (74.8%) being higher than cutoff score of 30.5. 'We applied a structural equation model to the relationship among Yang-Xu constitution and the variables of interest.'Results showed the intensity of stress in adult ICU nurses being negatively correlated with extraversion and positively with neuroticism. Yang-Xu Body constitution was found to be positively correlated with intensity of stress. We found the intensity of stress to mediate or partially mediate the association between extraversion, neuroticism, and Yang-Xu body constitution in adult ICU nurses.' Conclusion: 'A high intensity of stress in adult ICU nurses was significantly correlated with personality traits and consequently significantly resulted in the Yang-Xu body constitution. The results suggest that nursing managers can screen the personality traits of nurses before enrolling adult ICU nurses. It is also recommended that stress-adaptation and health promote education courses be provided to adult ICU nurses as a preventive measure for Yang-Xu body constitution.
