Perceived degree of burnout among healthcare workers in a big hospital in southern Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie belyser problematiken kring utbrändhet bland personal inom vården. Långvarig stress bland sjukvårdspersonal kan leda till utbrändhet eller andra hälsoproblem och i värsta fall leda till allvarliga konsekvenser för vårdtagarna. Syftet med denna studie var att ta reda på om det fanns skillnader i graden av upplevd utbrändhet mellan undersköterskor, sjuksköterskor och medicinska sekreterare på ett stort sjukhus i södra Sverige. Samband mellan grad av utbrändhet och variabler som ålder, kön, sjukskrivningstillfällen och sjukskrivningsdagar undersöktes även. Studien baserades på en kvantitativ forskningsansats med 69 deltagare varav majoriteten var kvinnor. Datainsamlingen genomfördes med den webbaserade enkäten Maslach´s Burnout Inventory – General Survey (MBI-GS) som innehöll tre frågeområden (nedsatt prestationsförmåga, negativ inställning & utmattning). I resultatet framkom att deltagare i samtliga befattningar i genomsnitt upplevde medelgrad av utbrändhet dock med stora individuella skillnader. Det framkom att de deltagare som upplevde att de hade svårare att prestera på arbetsplatsen kände sig mer utmattade. De deltagare som var mer utmattade hade även fler sjukskrivningstillfällen. Några samband mellan grad av utbrändhet och variabler som ålder, kön och sjukskrivningsdagar hittades inte.

Abstract [en]

This study highlights the problem of burnout among health care workers. Long-lasting stress among medical professionals can lead to burnout or other health problems and even lead to serious consequences for patients. The purpose of this study was to determine if there were differences in the degree of perceived burnout among enrolled nurses, nurses and medical secretary at a large hospital in southern Sweden. Relationships between the degree of burnout and variables such as age, sex, number of sick leaves and sick days were also investigated. The study was based on a quantitative research approach with 69 participants, of whom the majority were women. The data collection was carried out with the web-based survey Maslach's Burnout Inventory - General Survey (MBI-GS) containing three issue areas (reduced performance, negative attitude and fatigue). The result showed that participants at all positions experienced moderate degrees of burnout, however, with large individual differences. The results also showed that the participants who felt that they had more difficulty to perform in the workplace felt more fatigued. The participants who were more fatigued also had more sick leaves. Correlations between the degree of burnout and variables such as age, gender and sick leave days were not found.
