Abstract
OBJECTIVES
This study examined job satisfaction, empowerment, job stress, and burnout among tuberculosis management nurses and physicians in public healthcare institutions.
METHODS
This was a cross-sectional study analyzing survey data collected from 249 nurses and 57 physicians in 105 public health centers, three public tuberculosis hospitals, and one tertiary hospital. The survey questionnaire comprised general characteristics, work-related characteristics, and four index scales (job satisfaction, empowerment, job stress, and burnout). The two-sample t-test was used to estimate the mean differences in the four index scales. Multiple regression analysis was used to determine whether general and work-related characteristics affected the four index scales.
RESULTS
The job satisfaction and empowerment scores of the nurses were lower than those of the physicians. Except for the tuberculosis-specialized hospitals alone, the average job satisfaction scores of nurses were higher than those of physicians. Moreover, the nurses reported more job stress and burnout than did the physicians in tuberculosis departments in public healthcare institutions in Korea; in particular, the burnout reported by nurses was significantly higher than that reported by physicians at the National Medical Center. Marital status, nursing position, number of coworkers, the average number of days of overtime work per month, self-rated health, and hospital type were associated with the four index scales.
CONCLUSIONS
Overall, nurses were more vulnerable to job stress and burnout than physicians. Reducing the workload of nurses by ensuring the presence of sufficient nursing staff and equipment, as well as by equipping facilities to prevent tuberculosis infections, should be considered priorities.
Summary
Korean summary
"본 연구에서는 직무만족도, 임파워먼트, 직무스트레스와 업무소진을 결핵관리 의사와 간호사에서 살펴 보았다. 전반적으로 결핵관리 간호사들의 업무관련 심리적 지표가 의사들에 비해 안좋았으나 결핵전문병원 간호사들의 직무만족도가 예외적으로 의사보다 좋았다. 이러한 간호사들의 업무관련 심리적 지표는 결혼상태, 간호사들의 서열, 동료간호사들의 수, 월별 평균초과근무일수, 주관적 건강상태와 근무하는 병원형태에 따라 영향을 받았고, 향후 이에 대한 심층연구가 필요할 것으로 생각된다.”
