Abstract

Background: Burnout among healthcare providers is one of the major obstacles influencing healthcare practice and quality of healthcare. Chronic psychological strain at work can lead to burnout, which manifests itself in feelings of emotional tiredness, increasing depersonalization, and a lessened sense of personal success. Objectives: The aim of this review is to determine the burden and personal and professional predictors of burnout among healthcare professionals. Methods: 21 papers out of 328 studies satisfied the requirements for inclusion in this study. All of them were cross-sectional, except for two systematic reviews. Physicians, nurses, residents, and other healthcare personnel frequently experience burnout; prevalence estimates typically fall between 21.3% and 92.2%. The prevalence estimates for the three MBI subscales ranged widely, low Personal Accomplishment (19.7-89.2%), high Emotional Exhaustion (3.82 - 84.8%), and high Depersonalization (0.88 - 96.6%). Significant correlations between burnout and gender, nationality, length of service, working hours, and shift schedules were found. Results: Results show gender inequality, socioeconomic stress, limited access to education, substance abuse, psychological illness including childhood exposure to violence, sociocultural norms with their acceptance, religious interpretation, and lack of legal protection and support service as primary determinants of IPV in marital relationships. Conclusion: Burnout is found to be very common among healthcare professionals. It is required to conduct more in-depth epidemiologic research on burnout.
