This study aims to determine the relationship between body mass index and workload with complaints of MSDs among broiler chicken workers in Eastern Indonesia. We used a cross-sectional study approach to obtain research findings. Sixty respondents were involved in this study. They filled out three questionnaires that had been tested for validity and reliability. Fur-thermore, the collected data were analyzed using a bivariate test to interpret the research findings. The results showed that there was no relationship between Body Mass Index (p= 0.446) and workload (p= 0.800) with complaints of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) among the workers. Further, we also found no relationship between Body Mass Index and workload with complaints of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) among workers). It is recommended that chicken workers stretch the muscles before and after working and always meet the nutritional needs to keep the body's metabolic system working properly</p> Suharni Fachrin Samsualam Alfina Baharuddin Copyright (c) 17 3 Reflective Case Discussion (RCD) to enchance Skill conceptual, Critical thinking and Nursing Knowledge: A Systematic Review https://journal.achsm.org.au/index.php/achsm/article/view/2451 <p><em>Objective:</em> the systematic review aims to identify the benefits of conducting reflective case discussions (RCD) in improving skills, critical thinking and knowledge of nurses</p> <p><em>Method:</em> This systematic review uses the PRISMA Guideline checklist.
