ABSTRACT

Objective: The objective of the study is to analyse the major effects of night shift among IT workers in southern Chennai and give advice based on the perspective of a pharmacist. Method: a study questionnaire was prepared and a survey was carried out. It was distributed to IT night workers and the results were analysed using percentages and chi square test. Results: The results showed that the night workers have a disturbance in their circadian rhythm and so it affects other physiological and mental parts of their health. Conclusion: This study was able to analyse the health effects associated with night shift from the perspective of a pharmacist.it has been well observed that night work or night shift goes a long way to affect the health and habits of individuals. The study was able to prove that night shift affects the circadian rhythm which in turn causes various disorders like insomnia, depression, stress and other health occurrences. Possible advice has been given to an extent which the community pharmacist is allowed to. It is important that these simple guidelines be followed to ensure good health of an individual even if they have to work night shift. “Take care of your health so that you can live to work as you work to live”.
