BACKGROUND To improve working conditions and prevent illness and deaths related to overwork, the Taiwanese government in 2015, 2016, and 2018 amended regulations regarding working time, overtime, shifts, and rest days. Such policy changes may lead to a rising public awareness of overwork-related issues, which may in turn reinforce policy development. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate to what extent public awareness of overwork-related issues correlated with policy changes. METHODS Polici...

The air pollution emitted by petrochemical industrial complexes (PICs) may affect the respiratory health of surrounding residents. Previous meta-analyses have indicated a higher risk of lung cancer mortality and incidence among residents near a PIC. Therefore, in this study, a meta-analysis was conducted to estimate the degree to which PIC exposure increases the risk of the development of nonmalignant respiratory symptoms among residents. We followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic ...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate the variation in gun violence-related research in the US over time to determine if there are meaningful changes in frequency of research at certain time points. Related publications were searched from the Web of Science. METHODS: We searched articles from Web of Science to collect publication data of gun violence research in three disciplines (clinical sciences, life sciences, and social behavior sciences) from 1981 to 2018. The joinpoint regression approach was ...

BACKGROUND: There is a global commitment to eliminating tuberculosis (TB). It is critical to detect and treat cases of latent TB infection (LTBI), the reservoir of new TB cases. Our study assesses trends in publication of LTBI-related research. METHODS: We used the keywords ("latent tuberculosis" OR "LTBI" OR "latent TB") to search the Web of Science for LTBI-related articles published 1995-2018, then classified the results into three research areas: laboratory sciences, clinical research, and p...

Background: Two international conventions offer governments guidelines for achieving a total asbestos ban policy, but the conventions' long-term effect on policy implementation, and the role of government effectiveness, remains unknown. We investigated associations between government ratification of international conventions, government effectiveness, and implementation of a national total asbestos ban. Methods: We collected data on year of a national asbestos ban, year of ratification of conven...

Objectives Taiwan revised its criteria for overwork-related cerebrovascular and cardiovascular disease (CCVD) in 2010. A new definition of overwork increased the number of recognised cases. Meanwhile, actual average working hours decreased. We estimated the effects of the revised criteria on the number of overwork-related CCVD cases and the mediation effect through reduced working hours. Methods From the Labor Insurance of Taiwan, we collected data on the total number of overwork-related CCVD ca...

Introduction Overwork-related cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is an emerging occupational and public health issue in East Asian societies with a substantial impact on workers’ rights and labor standards. To eliminate exposure to work-related risk factors and prevent overwork-related CVD, establishing national policy is a key step. We investigated the development and impact of policies and research regarding overwork-related CVD in recent years in Taiwan. Methods We collected inf...
