Abstract


Introduction: Burnout syndrome is a real scourge of the XXI century, especially for people who work within a communication-related field. However, the issues on development and specific manifestations of occupational stress among doctors of different specialties have not been systematically studied yet. Material and Methods: A pilot study was conducted to assess the burnout syndrome as a complex systemic state of the professional activity of various medical specialists in the Republic of Moldova, depending on their psychophysiological characteristics. The pilot study involved 73 specialists, with a mean age of 38.2 (±1.1) years. Results: Of the 73 medical workers tested, 38.3% of them did not suffer from burnout, while 61.6% presented various signs of burnout. The specific characteristics of the professional exhaustion among healthcare workers were revealed depending on their specialty and work experience, as well as on their psychophysiological peculiarities. The most susceptible to stress factors were the healthcare workers with <10 years of working experience, 77.1%. The constituent mental health blocks showed changes among different medical specialties under the influence of occupational exhaustion. Conclusion: A relationship between physician burnout, their behavioral type and level of emotional stability has been demonstrated.
