Job Demands and Strain-Based Conflict among Nurses of Public Hospitals in Nigeria

Nurses of public hospitals in Nigeria, while carrying out their role functions are consistently faced with high job demands placing great claim on nurse’s energy and time. In the course of carrying out a role function, nurses experience interference of demands on another role function, hence resulting to strain-based conflict. The study explores the degree of relationship between job demands and strain-based conflict. Job demands focused in this study includes work hour, work overload, work schedule and overtime work. Data were obtained from 291 registered nurses in public hospitals in Rivers State. The purposive sampling technique which is based on the researcher’s subjective judgment and the cross sectional design which takes a cross section of the population at one time where employed in this study. Hypotheses was tested with a non-parametric statistical technique of Spearman Rank Correlation analysis calculated with the use of Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 21.0 Revealed from the findings is the existence of a of a relationship between to job demands and strain-based conflict. Work overload is found to be the major influence of strain-based conflict. Hence to reduce job demands and strain-based conflict, there is need for the provision of standard work hour, a measurable control over work schedules, development of organizational skills and reduction and monitoring of daily work load. The study concentrated only on four notable public hospitals, this however cannot be generalized effectively to other public hospitals. The possibility of job demands to result to strain-based conflict thus cannot be undermined and should be taken into cognizance by organization.

An Investigation How Quantitative Easing Programme, Vickers’ Ring-Fencing Regulation and the ‘Brexit’ Announcement Impact on UK Banking Sector

In this paper, ‘Events study analysis’ is used to analyse the impact of Vickers’ Ring-fencing regulation, Quantitative Easing programme and the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union (‘Brexit’) on the UK banking system. Ten banks have been included in the study and the stock price data for each of them was collected from the 14th January 2011 to the 30th of July 2016. We find that banks affected by Vickers’ regulation did have negative abnormal returns as the policy progressed, indicating that the policy may not be the best way to limit risk in banks. The results also show that Quantitative Easing does affect the banks’ abnormal returns positively and that ‘bigger’ banks benefit more from its implementation. Finally, we discover that the ‘Brexit’ vote did cause negative abnormal returns across all banks, however, it was the smaller ‘unaffected’ banks which suffered the most.

The objective of the study was to access gender differences in coping strategies employed by survivors of child sexual abuse. Descriptive study design was used when conducting the study. Both quantitative and qualitative data was collected so as to have a holistic approach. 60 participants where part of the study out of which 50 where girls and 10 where boys. The study was conducted at YWCA in Lusaka. In this study 50.9% girls and 85.9% boys received counseling after being abused. Counselors were the most preferable people to talk to by most of the participants as 30.2% girls and 85.7 boys said they talked to the counselor with the hope that they will move on. In addition according to the results more boys, 71.4% had moved on after the abuse as compared to girls 67.9%. The findings showed that boys opened up more than girls who preferred to talk to no one. This was an indication that girls mostly engaged in emotion-focused coping strategies while boys used problem-focused strategies more.
