Nordic network - physiological response to job stress

Nordic network - physiological response to job stressIntroduction
The present homepage presents activities in a Nordic Network on Physiological measures in relation to job stress in the Nordic Countries. The basis of the Nordic Network is an offspring of a previous project entitled 'A model for co-ordination of data from measurements of physiological effects of occupational stressors', funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

The purpose of the project was: 

  • To improve the comparability of methods by co-ordinate Nordic data on measurement of physiological effects of occupational stressors (e.g. discussion of sampling protocols, sampling time, storage of samples etc.) 
  • To establish a laboratory comparison between the institutions participating in the Nordic Network 
  • To establish a model database for measurement of physiological effects (salivary cortisol was chosen as a start component)

The joint action for co-ordination of data may be useful for evaluation of the usefulness of hormones as a measure for physiological effects of occupational stressors across countries.
