ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of interpersonal conflicts on burnout in hospital organizations and its consequences on health. A longitudinal design was employed on a sample of 316 nursing professionals. Burnout was measured by the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI-HSS), (Maslach y Jackson 1986). Different sources of interpersonal conflicts were evaluated by 6 items (α = 0.76, T1; α = 0.72, T2). Disorders of health were assessed with a scale of 13 items, which summarize the subjective perception of individuals who have experienced these disorders in their jobs (α = 0.82, T1; α = 0.81, T2). Regression analysis showed that Interpersonal Conflicts were significant predictors of Emotional exhaustion and Personal accomplishment, while Emotional exhaustion and Despersonalization was found to be a significant predictor of Disorders of health. The study concludes that it must take into account the relational and emotional factors to prevent burnout in nurses and the problems associated. Furthermore, in a methodological level, it is necessary to make longitudinal studies.

    ABSTRACT: Nurses (N=545) responded to a survey of areas of worklife, burnout, physical symptoms, and occupational risk assessment at the beginning of a merger of three hospitals in a Canadian city. A structural analysis confirmed that exhaustion partially mediated between mismatches in two areas of worklife (workload and control) and physical symptoms of stress. Exhaustion partially mediated as well the relationship of verbal abuse with physical symptoms of stress and the relationship of job risks with these symptoms. The analysis confirmed a direct relationship of job risks with physical symptoms in addition to the relationship's indirect path through exhaustion. This path provides an alternative route for indirect effects of other variables with physical symptoms. The results are considered in terms of an integrated model of psychological relationships with work. The mediating role of exhaustion is discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Objetivo. Analizar el desgaste profesional y la prevalencia de psicomorbilidad entre facultativos de atención primaria (AP) y determinar su relación con aspectos sociodemográficos y laborales. Diseño. Estudio transversal y descriptivo. Emplazamiento. Centros de AP del Área 8 de Madrid. Sujetos. Los 244 médicos y pediatras con labor asistencial en dicha área en el momento de realizarse el estudio. Método. Cuestionario anónimo autoadministrado que incluye: el Maslach Burnout Inventory (mide el desgaste profesional); el GHQ-28 (detección de una posible enfermedad mental); encuesta sobre datos sociodemográficos, laborales, conductas no saludables, consumo de medicamentos y percepción de calidad de la asistencia y riesgo de errores médicos en relación con la presión en el trabajo, y pregunta abierta sobre las causas de estrés laboral. Resultados. La tasa de respuesta fue del 80,3%. Está afectado por burnout el 69,2% (IC del 95%, 62,1-75,4%) de los facultativos, un 12,3% de ellos, de forma aguda. La prevalencia de posible psicomorbilidad es del 36,7%. Se encontró una asociación del desgaste profesional con los siguientes aspectos: una posible psicomorbilidad (p < 0,01); la percepción de que la presión en el trabajo produce con frecuencia una disminución de la calidad y la precipitación de errores médicos (p < 0,01); tener plaza en propiedad (p < 0,05), más de 1.700 pacientes en el cupo (p < 0,05), una edad de 37 y 46 años (p < 0,01) y una presión asistencial de 35-47 pacientes/día (p < 0,05). Conclusiones. Existe una elevada prevalencia de desgaste profesional y de posible psicomorbilidad, apareciendo ambas variables relacionadas. Se percibe en un elevado porcentaje que la presión del trabajo ha hecho disminuir la calidad de la asistencia prestada.

    ABSTRACT: There is a growing interest in the psychosocial work environment of health care staff since they are at high risk for burnout, role conflict and job dissatisfaction. Burnout, as a type of prolonged response to chronic job-related stressors, has a special significance in health care where staff experience both psychological-emotional and physical stress. Burnout and the other negative aspects of the job of health care staff have major behavioural and health implications. The present study investigated the interrelationships among burnout, role conflict and job satisfaction in a sample of Hungarian health care staff. The study also investigated how these indicators of psychosocial work climate influence respondents' frequency of psychosomatic symptoms. A questionnaire survey (anonymous questionnaires) has been carried out to detect these interrelationships. Two major hospitals in Szeged, Hungary. Questionnaires were distributed to 450 health care staff among whom 55.7% were registered nurses. All together, 201 questionnaires were returned and analyzed, giving a response rate of 44.6%. Questionnaire contained items on work and health-related information (i.e., burnout, job satisfaction, role conflict, and psychosomatic symptoms) and on some basic sociodemographics. Beyond descriptive statistics, correlation and multiple regression analyses were computed. Findings show that emotional exhaustion and depersonalization scores were higher, while scores on personal accomplishment was lower as compared to Canadian, Norwegian or US samples. Burnout, particularly emotional exhaustion (p<.001), was found to be strongly related to job dissatisfaction. Schooling was inversely related to satisfaction with the job (p<.05). While job satisfaction was a negative predictor of each type of burnout subscale (p<.001), role conflict was a factor contributing positively to emotional exhaustion (p<.001) and depersonalization scores (p<.001). The study results underline the importance of the role of psychosocial work environment and the interrelationships among burnout, role conflict, job satisfaction and psychosomatic health among Hungarian health care staff.
