This project aims to study, in one hand, the role of passion for work in Secondary Traumatic Stress (STS) development among healthcare workers in Intensive Care Units (ICU), and its relationship with other personality variables (such as empathy, self-compassion); and in the other hand, to propose preventative measure for this risky work settings.
Project
The working and organizational conditions, traumatic tasks, as well as the various challenges that health institutions and professionals have to face have changed over time, sometimes stemming from the continuous changes that are taking place in society. An area that has experienced a particularly large increase over the last years is the organ transplant area. The reason for this increase is twofold: (1) the continuing medical advances in the process of donation and transplantation which are essential for improving the survival of humans; (2) an increasing demand for organs due to diseases related to an aging population and certain pathological conditions. In order to keep the process of donation and transplants efficient, the task that health professionals perform every day is essential. From this perspective, this project analyses the organizational factors and deficiencies in the work environment which are causes of occupational risks that these professionals may suffer (i.e., stress, burnout, secondary traumatic stress) as well as personal factors which moderate or mediate the problem. Some studies show that professionals neglect the emotional demands in their work and, aggravating the problem, do not receive adequate organizational support. To this end, the aim of the project focuses on variables that can generate or inversely prevent psychosocial risks faced by health workers in these units daily and on a general level, contributing to the adoption of preventive measures within health institutions as well as to the optimal functioning of the process of donation and transplantation of organs. The project involves studying whether these results are different in other health institutions such as the Brazilian
