L’étude visait à établir les caractéristiques du syndrome d’épuisement émotionnel et son lien avec les caractéristiques typologiques de la personnalité chez les infirmières travaillant avec des patients atteints de COVID-19.

BACKGROUND: Under the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the problem of emotional burnout syndrome among nurses working under extremely stressful conditions has become particularly acute. It is therefore necessary to examine the characteristics of emotional burnout syndrome in nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic to develop effective measures to prevent and enhance their mental health. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to establish the features of emotional burnout syndrome and its connection with typological characteristics of the personality in nurses working with COVID-19 patients. METHODS: A total of 120 female nurses who worked with COVID-19 patients were surveyed, of whom 60 (50.0%) worked in outpatient settings along with general practitioners and 60 (50.0%) worked in the intensive care unit. The average age of the participants was 40.86±3.20 years, and the average length of medical service was 13.64±1.73 years. RESULTS: A burnout syndrome of varying severity was present in 50.0%of outpatient nurses and 73.3%of intensive care nurses (OR = 2.44, 95%CI [1.16–5.16]; p < 0.05). The tension phase predominated in outpatient nurses (53.3%), and the resistance phase was more typical for intensive care nurses (63.3%). CONCLUSIONS: The practice of nurses under COVID-19 pandemic conditions is characterized by the high prevalence of emotional burnout syndrome. Lisez l’article
