Title The association of needlestick injury with depressive symptoms among first-year medical residents in Japan
Bibliographic information Dec. 2007, Vol.45, No.6, p.750-755. Illus. 22 ref.
Abstract The objective of this study was to determine the association of depressive symptoms with needlestick injury among first-year medical residents in Japan. It was conducted in the form of a cross-sectional study among 107 medical residents in 14 training hospitals. The baseline survey was conducted in 2005 and the follow-up survey in 2006. Depressive symptoms were classified based on the Center for Epidemiological Study of Depression Stale (CES-D). Factors associated with depressive symptoms were examined using logistic regression analysis. For medical residents without depressive symptoms at the baseline survey, needlestick injury events were associated with depressive symptoms at the follow-up survey (corrected odds ratio 2.98). Implications of these findings are discussed.
