AnotationThe aim of the study is to provide a cross-cultural comparison of incidence of low back pain with focus for prevalence of other musculoskeletal pain among nursing professionals in the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. The study will provide a systematic collection of data about the current musculoskeletal health of nurses in both of the countries and will evaluate the awareness and level of impact of the manual handling legislation on the incidence of the musculoskeletal disorder among nursing professionals. The cross-cultural comparison of incidence of low back pain highlights the risk of developing back pain among nursing and how it contributes to the health of nurses.
