Cette étude visait à reconfigurer les dimensions importantes affectant la culture de sécurité et à examiner les associations entre la culture de sécurité et les facteurs psychosociaux (épuisement émotionnel et équilibre entre vie professionnelle et vie privée).

How to develop a better patient safety culture has been an important goal for healthcare organizations, but the effects of safety culture on psychosocial factors, such as emotional exhaustion and stress, have not been fully addressed. This study aimed to reconfigure important dimensions affecting safety culture and examine the associations between safety culture and psychosocial factors (emotional exhaustion and work-life balance). The partial least squaring technique was used to analyze the data, showing that job satisfaction (β = 0.320, P < 0.001), working conditions (β = 0.307, P < 0.001), and perception of management (β = 0.282, P < 0.001) positively affected the safety climate. The safety climate and work-life balance could reduce the occurrence of emotional exhaustion, whereas a high-stress environment would cause a higher level of emotional exhaustion. Given these findings, hospitals should endeavor to help employees feel safe and not threatened, reduce stress, and advise them to maintain a good work-life balance. Consultez la page de l’article
