AJAYU 01/2010; 8:62-100.

ABSTRACT Se establece la relación entre el � burnout� , la satisfacción laboral y los rasgos de personalidad en 215 enfermeras de 7 hospitales en la La Paz. Se determina el nivel de confiabilidad y la validez factorial del MBI, del Minitest de los Cinco Grandes de Brody y Ehrilchman y del Cuestionario de Satisfacción Laboral de Travers y Cooper. La satisfacción laboral se corrrelaciona positivamente con la � realización personal� , negativamente con � despersonalización� y � agotamiento emocional� . La consistencia interna del MBI es óptima. El Mini test BFT no es un instrumento confiable. El cuestionario de Satisfacción Laboral posee consistencia interna adecuada. La satisfacción laboral se relaciona con el estilo de gerencia y el interés que se les da a las sugerencias. El 8% de la muestra presenta el síndrome de burnout.

    ABSTRACT: With this research we try to study personality traits that could be associated with high punctuation at burnout scales (Maslach Burnout Inventory) in primary care physicians. Observational, descriptive, transversal. 93 primary care centres in Barcelona-city and the northern province's region: Vallès Oriental, Vallès Occidental, Maresme, Osona, Bages and Berguedà (centre sanitary region). Individual or collective direct interview to 528 primary care physicians. Three questionnaires were administrated: a sociodemographic item one, the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), and the Cattell personality test 16-PF. The 40% of the interviewed physicians had some burnout symptoms without any difference between sexes. 12.4% of these showed very high burnout levels. Those subjects with burnout criteria punctuated different at stability, tension and vigilance traits and anxiety dimension. Some personality traits like low stability, the tension and the anxiety are associated with high punctuation of burnout.

    ABSTRACT: High rates of professional burnout syndrome have been found among health service professionals. Our objective was to study the prevalence of burnout syndrome in hospital health workers and to determine its relationship with personal and environmental factors. A total of 2290 health workers from five hospitals in the province of Girona (Spain) were invited to participate. Interviewees were given a specifically designed questionnaire, a questionnaire on organizational climate, and the Spanish version of the Maslach Burnout Inventory, which includes three scales: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment. Responses were received from 1095 health workers (a response rate of 47.8%). A high level of emotional exhaustion was found in 41.6% of staff members, especially among doctors and nurses; a high level of depersonalization was found in 23%, mainly among doctors, and reduced personal accomplishment was found in 27.9%, mainly among technicians and doctors. Multiple logistic regression revealed that a high level of emotional exhaustion was associated with frequent consumption of tranquilizers or antidepressants, whereas optimism and job satisfaction showed an inverse association. The variables that were inversely associated with a high level of depersonalization were the number of years in the profession, optimism, evaluation of work as being useful and the perception of being valued by others. Reduced personal accomplishment was also inversely associated with optimism, satisfaction with the usefulness of one's work, and satisfaction with teamwork. In view of the results obtained, to reduce professional burnout in hospitals, optimism and a sense of self-worth among individuals should be encouraged and the organizational environment should be improved.

    ABSTRACT: This investigation examined psychological burnout among 833 men and women in teaching using a framework developed by Cherniss (1980). Work setting characteristics in concert with person variables (both individual differences and extra-work factors) were hypothesized to result in experienced stress. Some individuals cope with these sources of stress by developing the negative attitude change termed psychological burnout. Respondents provided data by completing questionnaires anonymously. The data provide strong preliminary support for the model and produced findings consistent with previous research. Suggestions for organizational intervention are offered.
