||Burnout and work environments of public health nurses involved in mental health care
||Sep. 2004, Vol.61, No.9, p.764-768. 36 ref.
||In this case-control study of burnout among psychiatric nurses, cases comprised 525 public health nurses engaged in mental health services at public health centres, while the control group comprised 525 public health nurses engaged in other health services. Pines' Burnout Scale was used to measure burnout. A questionnaire was also prepared to investigate systems for supporting nurses working at public health centres and to define emergency mental health service factors contributing to burnout. Prevalence of burnout was significantly higher in the psychiatric group (59.2%) than in the control group (51.5%). Lack of job control and frequent overtime in emergency services were significantly correlated with prevalence of burnout in the psychiatric group, but not in the control group.
