Examiner la prévalence de l’épuisement professionnel et ses facteurs liés au travail chez les prestataires de santé publique (PSP) pendant la pandémie de COVID-19.

Objective:  To examine the prevalence of burnout and its work-related factors among public health providers (PHP) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods:  We surveyed 366 PHP in May 2021 on their burnout, demographic, and work-related characteristics. Logistic regression analyses were conducted to identify associated factors. Results:  45% PHP reported burnout. Higher PHP burnout was associated with younger age (AOR 0.96, 95% CI 0.93–0.99), prolonged COVID-19 involvement (AOR 2.35, 95% CI 1.16–4.72), as well as perceiving medium (AOR 2.10, 95% CI 1.27–3.48) and high emotional demand (AOR 4.45, 95% CI 1.67–11.77), low (AOR 2.10, 95% CI 1.27–3.48) and medium (AOR 4.18, 95% CI 1.64–10.59) role clarity, medium job satisfaction (AOR 3.21, 95% CI: 1.11–9.29), and low organisational justice (AOR 3.32, 95% CI 1.51–7.27). Conclusions:  Improving job content and organisational characteristics may be key to reducing PHP burnout.
