Socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population: the contribution of working conditions. (1/1262)BACKGROUND: The aim was to study the impact of different categories of working conditions on the association between occupational class and self-reported health in the working population. METHODS: Data were collected through a postal survey conducted in 1991 among inhabitants of 18 municipalities in the southeastern Netherlands. Data concerned 4521 working men and 2411 working women and included current occupational class (seven classes), working conditions (physical working conditions, job control, job demands, social support at work), perceived general health (very good or good versus less than good) and demographic confounders. Data were analysed with logistic regression techniques. RESULTS: For both men and women we observed a higher odds ratio for a less than good perceived general health in the lower occupational classes (adjusted for confounders). The odds of a less than good perceived general health was larger among people reporting more hazardous physical working conditions, lower job control, lower social support at work and among those in the highest category of job demands. Results were similar for men and women. Men and women in the lower occupational classes reported more hazardous physical working conditions and lower job control as compared to those in higher occupational classes. High job demands were more often reported in the higher occupational classes, while social support at work was not clearly related to occupational class. When physical working conditions and job control were added simultaneously to a model with occupational class and confounders, the odds ratios for occupational classes were reduced substantially. For men, the per cent change in the odds ratios for the occupational classes ranged between 35% and 83%, and for women between 35% and 46%. CONCLUSIONS: A substantial part of the association between occupational class and a less than good perceived general health in the working population could be attributed to a differential distribution of hazardous physical working conditions and a low job control across occupational classes. This suggests that interventions aimed at improving these working conditions might result in a reduction of socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population. (+info)
Views of managed care--a survey of students, residents, faculty, and deans at medical schools in the United States. (2/1262)BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Views of managed care among academic physicians and medical students in the United States are not well known. In 1997, we conducted a telephone survey of a national sample of medical students (506 respondents), residents (494), faculty members (728), department chairs (186), directors of residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics (143), and deans (105) at U.S. medical schools to determine their experiences in and perspectives on managed care. The overall rate of response was 80.1 percent. RESULTS: Respondents rated their attitudes toward managed care on a 0-to-10 scale, with 0 defined as "as negative as possible" and 10 as "as positive as possible." The expressed attitudes toward managed care were negative, ranging from a low mean (+/-SD) score of 3.9+/-1.7 for residents to a high of 5.0+/-1.3 for deans. When asked about specific aspects of care, fee-for-service medicine was rated better than managed care in terms of access (by 80.2 percent of respondents), minimizing ethical conflicts (74.8 percent), and the quality of the doctor-patient relationship (70.6 percent). With respect to the continuity of care, 52.0 percent of respondents preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 29.3 percent preferred managed care. For care at the end of life, 49.1 percent preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 20.5 percent preferred managed care. With respect to care for patients with chronic illness, 41.8 percent preferred fee-for-service care, and 30.8 percent preferred managed care. Faculty members, residency-training directors, and department chairs responded that managed care had reduced the time they had available for research (63.1 percent agreed) and teaching (58.9 percent) and had reduced their income (55.8 percent). Overall, 46.6 percent of faculty members, 26.7 percent of residency-training directors, and 42.7 percent of department chairs reported that the message they delivered to students about managed care was negative. CONCLUSIONS: Negative views of managed care are widespread among medical students, residents, faculty members, and medical school deans. (+info)
Investigation into the attitudes of general practitioners in Staffordshire to medical audit. (3/1262)OBJECTIVES: To investigate the attitudes of general practitioners to medical audit, and any associations between their attitudes and their personal characteristics. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey. SETTING --Staffordshire, United Kingdom. SUBJECTS: 870 Staffordshire general practitioners. MAIN MEASURES: Agreement or disagreement and associations between the attitudes to 16 statements about audit and the doctors' personal or practice characteristics--namely, sex, number of years since qualification, practice list size, number of partners, and the practices' experience of audit. RESULTS: 601 Staffordshire general practitioners (69%) responded. There was most agreement with the statements that audit is time consuming (86%), that ongoing training and education is needed (71%), that there is a compulsion applied on doctors to audit (68%), and that extra resources for audit should be provided by the medical audit advisory group (65%). There was considerable disagreement (53% of general practitioners) with the statement that inverted question markgovernment policy to expect general practitioners to do audit will enhance the population's health. inverted question mark The median response by the 601 general practitioners was four positive responses out of 14 statements about audit (two of the 16 statements could not be graded positive or negative to audit). Women doctors generally had more positive attitudes towards audit, and so had those working with smaller mean list sizes, those in larger partnerships, and those in practices that had carried out audit for a longer time. CONCLUSIONS: There was a generally negative attitude to medical audit, but it was encouraging that those doctors with the most experience of audit obtained the most job satisfaction from it. IMPLICATIONS: More effort is needed to convince general practitioners of the value of audit. Without this, attempts to involve other members of the primary care team in multidisciplinary clinical audit are unlikely to be effective. Successful audits that are shown to be cost effective as well as leading to improvements in patient care should be publicised and replicated. A higher proportion of resources should be devoted to audit. (+info)
Market-level health maintenance organization activity and physician autonomy and satisfaction. (4/1262)Managed care is widely expected to affect physicians throughout the healthcare system. In this study, we examined the relationship between health maintenance organization (HMO) activity and the level of competition, autonomy, and satisfaction perceived by physicians who do not work for HMOs. We obtained data on physicians from the 1991 Survey of Young Physicians, which contains a nationally representative sample of physicians younger than age 45 who had 2 to 9 years of practice experience in 1991. We examined the relationships between HMO market share and perceived competition, autonomy, and satisfaction using multivariate logistic regression. The main outcome measures were perceived level of competition; several measures of physicians' freedom to undertake common tasks that might be threatened by managed care (e.g., hospitalizing patients, ordering tests and procedures); satisfaction with current practice situation; perceived ability to practice quality medicine; whether the physician would attend medical school again; and satisfaction with medicine as a career. We found that an increase of 10 percentage points in HMO market share was associated with a 28% increase in the probability that physicians will regard their practice situation as very competitive as opposed to somewhat or not competitive (P < 0.01). Examinations of the relationship between HMO market share and autonomy and satisfaction revealed few significant results. We found no evidence that increases in HMO activity adversely affect physician autonomy. Only a limited amount of evidence indicates that increases in HMO activity reduce the satisfaction of specialist physicians, and no evidence associates HMO activity with the satisfaction of generalists. Although physicians perceive HMOs as competitors, HMO activity has not had a strong negative effect on the autonomy and satisfaction of physicians. (+info)
Effect of compensation method on the behavior of primary care physicians in managed care organizations: evidence from interviews with physicians and medical leaders in Washington State. (5/1262)The perceived relationship between primary care physician compensation and utilization of medical services in medical groups affiliated with one or more among six managed care organizations in the state of Washington was examined. Representatives from 67 medical group practices completed a survey designed to determine the organizational arrangements and norms that influence primary care practice and to provide information on how groups translate the payments they receive from health plans into individual physician compensation. Semistructured interviews with 72 individual key informants from 31 of the 67 groups were conducted to ascertain how compensation method affects physician practice. A team of raters read the transcripts and identified key themes that emerged from the interviews. The themes generated from the key informant interviews fell into three broad categories. The first was self-selection and satisfaction. Compensation method was a key factor for physicians in deciding where to practice. Physicians' satisfaction with compensation method was high in part because they chose compensation methods that fit with their practice styles and lifestyles. Second, compensation drives production. Physician production, particularly the number of patients seen, was believed to be strongly influenced by compensation method, whereas utilization of ancillary services, patient outcomes, and satisfaction are seen as much less likely to be influenced. The third theme involved future changes in compensation methods. Medical leaders, administrators, and primary care physicians in several groups indicated that they expected changes in the current compensation methods in the near future in the direction of incentive-based methods. The responses revealed in interviews with physicians and administrative leaders underscored the critical role compensation arrangements play in driving physician satisfaction and behavior. (+info)
Perceived financial incentives, HMO market penetration, and physicians' practice styles and satisfaction. (6/1262)OBJECTIVE: To estimate the effects of physicians' personal financial incentives and other measures of involvement with HMOs on three measures of satisfaction and practice style: overall practice satisfaction, the extent to which prior expectations about professional autonomy and the ability to practice good-quality medicine are met, and several specific measures of practice style. DATA SOURCES: A telephone survey conducted in 1997 of 1,549 physicians who were located in the 75 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas in 1991. Eligible physicians were under age 52, had between 8 and 17 years of post-residency practice experience, and spent at least 20 hours per week in patient care. The response rate was 74 percent. STUDY DESIGN: Multivariate binomial and multinomial ordered logistic regression models were estimated. Independent variables included physicians' self-reported financial incentives, measured by the extent to which their overall financial arrangements created an incentive to either reduce or increase services to patients, the level of HMO penetration in the market, employment setting, medical specialty, exposure to managed care while in medical training, and selected personal characteristics. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: About 15 percent of survey respondents reported a moderate or strong incentive to reduce services; 70 percent reported a neutral incentive; and 15 percent reported an incentive to increase services. Compared to physicians with a neutral incentive, physicians with an incentive to reduce services were from 1.5 to 3.5 times more likely to be very dissatisfied with their practices and were 0.2 to 0.5 times as likely to report that their expectations regarding professional autonomy and ability to practice good-quality medicine were met. They were also 0.2 to 0.6 times as likely to report having the freedom to care for patients the way they would like along several specific measures of practice style, such as sufficient time with patients, ability to hospitalize, ability to order tests and procedures, and ability to make referrals. These effects were generally reinforced by practicing in an area with a high level of HMO penetration and were offset to some extent by having had exposure to HMOs and the practice of cost-effective medicine while in medical training. CONCLUSIONS: Although financial incentives to reduce services are not widespread, there is a legitimate reason to be concerned about possible adverse affects on the quality of care. More research is needed to investigate directly whether changes in patients' health are affected by their physicians' financial incentives. (+info)
Predictors and consequences of unemployment in construction and forest work during a 5-year follow-up. (7/1262)OBJECTIVES: The study investigated whether indicators of health, work conditions, or life-style predict subsequent unemployment and also the unemployment consequences related to health or life-style. METHODS: A questionnaire was administered to 781 male construction and 877 male forest workers (aged 20-49 years and working at the beginning of the study) in 1989 and 1994. Employment status during follow-up was ranked into the following 4 categories according to the employment status and unemployment time: continuously employed, re-employed, short-term (< or = 24 months) unemployed and long-term (> or =24 months) unemployed. RESULTS: The following base-line factors were associated with long-term unemployment during follow-up among the construction workers: age >40 years, poor subjective health, smoking, frequent heavy use of alcohol, low job satisfaction, marital status (single), and unemployment during the year preceding the initial survey. Among the forest workers, age >40 years, frequent stress symptoms, and preceding unemployment entered the model. In addition smoking predicted unemployment among the forest workers with no preceding unemployment. The proportion of regular smokers decreased among the long-term unemployed. Physical exercise was more frequent at the time of follow-up than it was initially, particularly among the unemployed. Stress symptoms increased among the construction workers, but musculoskeletal symptoms decreased significantly among the long-term unemployed. Among the forest workers stress symptoms decreased among the continuously employed and re-employed persons, but musculoskeletal symptoms decreased significantly for them all. CONCLUSIONS: Unemployment among construction workers is to some extent dependent on life-style, health, and job satisfaction in addition to age, marital status, and unemployment history. For forest workers, unemployment is less determined by individual factors. Changes in distress and musculoskeletal symptoms are dependent on employment, particularly among construction workers.

Sources and implications of dissatisfaction among new GPs in the inner-city. (8/1262)OBJECTIVES: We aimed to examine the factors that were most stressful for new principals in inner-city general practice. In addition, given the concerns about retention of new principals, to ascertain whether high perceived stress translated into regret that they had joined their practice and factors that might protect from regret. METHODS: A questionnaire survey, within an inner-city Health Authority. The subjects were 101 GPs appointed as principals between 1992 and 1995. RESULTS: Eighty-three out of 101 GPs replied. The greatest sources of stress were, in order, patient expectations, fear of complaint, out-of-hours stress and fear of violence. Although these stresses were scored highly, 61% expressed no regret at having joined their practice with just 4% reporting considerable regret. Stress within the partnership and stress arising from patient expectations accounted for 23% of the variation in regret. Holders of the MRCGP were significantly protected against regret; there was no evidence that other factors such as medical positions outside the practice, membership of a young principals support group, fundholding status or training practices offered significant protection against regret. CONCLUSION: Despite reported difficulties in recruiting new young principals to the inner-city-and despite their reported high levels of stress-few have regrets about their decision to join their practice. For those who did regret joining their practice, the three principal associations were partnership stress, patient expectations and not possessing the MRCGP. Each of these factors may be amenable to intervention by policies geared to improve GP retention. (+info)
Low job satisfaction can hamper your mental health - Mangalorean.com
The findings showed that mental health was most affected by ones feelings about their jobs.. "We found that there is a cumulative effect of job satisfaction on health that appears as early as your 40s," said lead author Jonathan Dirlam, doctoral student at The Ohio State University, in the US.. People who were less happy with their work early in their careers were more depressed and worried and also had more trouble sleeping.. The research revealed that those with low job satisfaction and downward trending careers had more problems like back pain and frequent colds compared to the ones with high satisfaction group.. "The higher levels of mental health problems for those with low job satisfaction may be a precursor to future physical problems," added Hui Zheng, Associate Professor at Ohio State.. "Increased anxiety and depression could lead to heart diseases or other health problems that wont show up until they are older," Zheng said.. On the other hand, people whose job satisfaction started ...

Job Satisfaction in Britain: Individual and Job Related Factors
Downloadable! Recently there is a resurgence of interest in the analysis of job satisfaction variables. Job satisfaction is correlated with labor market behavior such as productivity, quits and absenteeism. Recent work examined job satisfaction in relation to various factors. In this paper four different measures of job satisfaction are related to a variety of personal and job characteristics. We use a unique data of 28 240 British employees Workplace Employee Relations Survey (WERS97). Our data set is larger and more recent than in the previous studies. The four measures of job satisfaction considered are satisfaction with influence over job, satisfaction with amount of pay, satisfaction with sense of achievement and satisfaction with respect from supervisors. Although the job satisfaction measures we use are somewhat different than those that are previously used in the literature, a number of results that are commonly obtained with international data are found to hold in our data set as well.

"The Relationships Between Job Characteristics and Job Satisfaction Amo" by Carly M. Leblanc
Empirical studies have shown that employee turnover rates in call centers positions are significantly greater than most other job positions. This quantitative study examined the relationship of call center employees job satisfaction and job characteristics using Hackman and Oldhams Job Characteristics Model as the primary theoretical framework. Specifically, the study looked at the components of the Motivating Potential Score, including three psychological states and five job characteristics, in relation to job satisfaction. This study surveyed call center employees within a large payroll and human resources services company in New York State. The results of the study demonstrated that there was a strong positive correlation between job satisfaction and the Motivating Potential Score. In addition, the study showed that of the three psychological states, experienced meaningfulness and knowledge of results almost equally had the strongest relation to perceived job satisfaction. Feedback was shown to
Determinants of staff job satisfaction of caregivers in two nursing homes in Pennsylvania | BMC Health Services Research | Peer...
Job satisfaction is important for nursing home staff and nursing home management, as it is associated with absenteeism, turnover, and quality of care. However, we know little about factors associated with job satisfaction and dissatisfaction for nursing home workers. In this investigation, we use data from 251 caregivers (i.e., Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Nurse Aides) to examine: job satisfaction scores of these caregivers and what characteristics of these caregivers are associated with job satisfaction. The data were collected from two nursing homes over a two and a half year period with five waves of data collection at six-month intervals. The Job Description Index was used to collect job satisfaction data. We find that, overall nursing home caregivers are satisfied with the work and coworkers, but are less satisfied with promotional opportunities, superiors, and compensation. From exploratory factor analysis three domains represented the data, pay, management, and work. Nurse

WR) 304. The Fourth Aim: A Toolkit for Medical Educators to Develop Resilience, Maintain Professional Satisfaction, and Restore Joy to Teaching and Medical Practice. Research on burnout in medicine has revealed an epidemic. Higher prevalence (40 to 80%) is noted among medical residents and fellows compared to medical students, physicians, or college graduates of similar age. Among internists, burnout approaches 60%. High rates of burnout also apply to medical educators, which is especially troubling given that we serve two constituencies: patients and learners. There is potential for triple damage: to ourselves, our patients, and our learners. This erosion of professional satisfaction in a profession charged with healing is troubling. It forces us to ask a difficult question; How can we effectively enhance a sense of self-worth and physical integrity in the people we serve, if we ourselves have become seriously deficient (even impaired) in these areas? The Triple Aim, developed by the Institute ...

Since middle schools vary in their degree of implementation of middle school practices, this research was designed to compare the job satisfaction of middle school teachers with the degree of implementation of these practices. Six teachers from each of Colorados 50 schools with the name middle school were randomly selected to serve as subjects of the study. The original and one followup mailing yielded 252 responses (a 74 percent return) to the Purdue Teacher Opinionaire and the Middle School Practices Index. In addition to teacher satisfaction and the degree of implementation of middle school practices, the size of the student body and a number of teacher demographic variables were also considered. Analysis of variance and correlations were used to analyze the data. The findings indicate that overall job satisfaction of middle school faculty does not vary significantly in low, medium, or high implementation schools. In high as compared to low implementation schools,
Factors which influence the job satisfaction of female educators in secondary schools
This study has investigated the problems experienced by female educators in relation with their job satisfaction by focussing on: The nature of job satisfaction; The problems and factors which cause job satisfaction/job dissatisfaction among female educators; To achieve these goals a literature study and an empirical study has been conducted. The literature study was undertaken by consulting primary and secondary sources.

From a review of the literature, it appeared that the problems experienced by the female educators were intrinsic problems, within the classroom, outside the classroom, and within the community. A study population was used in which female educators who worked in secondary schools in the Potchefstroom District were involved. The empirical investigation indicated that the major problems experienced by the female educators were ...
"Relationship Between Job Satisfaction Among Frontline Staff and Patien" by Ashley Lynn Barnes
The role of frontline staff (FLS) is vital to the success of health delivery organizations as they are often the main point of patient contact and the primary source of feedback regarding the patient experience and satisfaction. Anecdotal evidence suggests that FLS have among the highest turnover rates in health delivery organizations, resulting in high recruitment and training costs as well as disruptions in day-to-day operations. However, few studies have examined the role of FLS and the factors affecting job satisfaction among FLS. Researchers have also not examined the impact of FLS satisfaction on patient satisfaction. To address these research gaps, this study examines the level of job satisfaction among FLS, the factors affecting FLS job satisfaction, and if there is a relationship between FLS job satisfaction and patient satisfaction. The study focuses on community health centers (CHCs) as they play a critical role as a safety net provider providing services to millions of individuals in
Job satisfaction matters … and the measurement of job satisfaction matters
Worker job satisfaction has been linked to salient measures of performance such as productivity, absenteeism, and workforce turnover. As such it is a construct that economists care about. Ive recently reviewed research on the determinants of job satisfaction in order to prepare for a study on pay-for-performance reforms in the health sector . And Ive found a few surprises…. First and foremost I am surprised by how job satisfaction is measured in much of the economic literature. Usually an economic survey will ask a single question to the worker, something very much like:. "How satisfied are you with your job"?. And the response is typically recorded as a 5-level Likert item  from 1 (not at all satisfied) to 5 (fully satisfied).. Such a simple open-ended question can be subject to various interpretations. After all there are various dimensions to a job. What if a worker is satisfied with some job aspects but not others? And what if different workers place differing levels of importance ...
Beyond patient care: the impact of healthcare reform on job satisfaction in the Ethiopian public healthcare sector | Human...
Healthcare professionals, as their patients, are clients of the healthcare system, in that their work requires the infrastructure, supervision, equipment, and physical setting to operate efficiently and cultivate a sustainable basic healthcare . How well they respond to patients needs depends on various financial, professional, political, social, and personal factors . In many countries, healthcare professionals are operating under serious policy, financial, organizational, and managerial constraints, with productivity, morale, and effectiveness suffering as a result. Principles for improving the values and skills of healthcare professionals were laudable but genuinely translating these into practice remained controversial. The recent World Health Organization global strategy on human resources for health: workforce 2030 has among its major principles to "uphold the personal, employment and professional rights of all healthcare workers, including safe and decent working environments and ...

SHRM Annual Survey Lists Top Five 'Very Important' Aspects of Job Satisfaction
Employees Place value on Compensation and Benefits (Alexandria, Va., June 24, 2007) - Nearly eight out of 10 employees reported overall satisfaction with their current positions, according to the 2007 Job Satisfaction Survey Report released today by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Compensation/pay, benefits, job security, flexibility to balance work/life issues and communication between employees and senior management were the top five contributors to job satisfaction, according to employees. The top five employee aspects mirror last years findings; the main difference was that communication between employees and senior management replaced feeling safe in the work environment as the fifth important aspect.. For the past four years, benefits and compensation/pay have both been rated by employees as the top two aspects most important to their job satisfaction. In 2007, 59% of employees each reported that benefits and compensation/pay were very important to their job ...
The Relationship between Social Capital in Hospitals and Physician Job Satisfaction | BMC Health Services Research | Full Text
National and international studies in recent years have revealed that a significant number of physicians working in the field of patient care are not satisfied with their job and the associated working conditions [1-3]. A survey conducted in the US, for example, demonstrated this dissatisfaction in revealing that up to 40% of the physicians practicing in hospitals would not take up this profession again. Even a higher portion of the questioned physicians stated that they prevented their children from becoming a physician . The workload of physicians proves to be one of the causes for the situation described. This fact is shown by different North American and European studies [5-10]. Also, the working conditions of clinicians in Germany have changed significantly in recent years. The number of patients in German hospitals has increased from approximately 14 million in 1990 to approximately 17 million in 2004. During the same period, however, the average length of stay has fallen from 14.7 days ...

Incentives to change: effects of performance-based financing on health workers in Zambia | Human Resources for Health | Full...
In this mixed-methods study, we investigated whether a national government-implemented PBF scheme improved three HRH outcomes in Zambia: motivation, job satisfaction, and attrition. Our econometric estimates suggest that PBF led to increased job satisfaction for a small number of constructs and decreased attrition of administrative staff and nurses, but PBF did not lead to marked effects on motivation. We also found support for overall job satisfaction and compensation, with both PBF and enhanced financing experiencing a more positive effect compared to pure control. However, the gains were slightly lower for the PBF than for the C1 group. For attrition, we observed lower turnover for administrators in the PBF group compared to either of the control groups. Incentive schemes may not have the same effect on HRH outcomes in another national context, which differ on labor market conditions including changes in staff salaries, retirement age, transfers within and across districts, and education ...
AMA's Christine Sinsky, MD, Explains EHR's Contribution to Physician Burnout | The Hospitalist
Half of U.S. physicians are experiencing some of the symptoms of burnout, with even higher rates for general internists. Implementation of the electronic health record (EHR) has been cited as the biggest driver of physician job dissatisfaction, Christine Sinsky, MD, a former hospitalist and currently vice president of professional satisfaction at the American Medical Association (AMA), told attendees at the 19th Management of the Hospitalized Patient Conference, presented by the University of California-San Francisco.1. Dr. Sinsky deemed physician discontent "the canary in the coal mine" for a dysfunctional healthcare system. After visiting 23 high-functioning medical teams, Dr. Sinsky said she had found that 70% to 80% of physician work output could be considered waste, defined as work that doesnt need to be done and doesnt add value to the patient. The AMA, she said, has made a commitment to addressing physicians dissatisfaction and burnout. Dr. Sinsky offered a number of suggestions for ...
Relative pay and job satisfaction: some new evidence
Downloadable! This paper investigates the determinants of job satisfaction using data from the National Educational Longitudinal Study. The determinants of interest include actual pay, relative pay, hours of work, job autonomy and several personal characteristics. We also investigate the determinants of satisfaction with pay conditional on a workers satisfaction with other domains of job satisfaction, such as satisfaction with job security. We find that relative pay is statistically significant but that its effect on satisfaction with pay is relatively small. Job autonomy has a powerful influence on satisfaction with pay. So too does being black.

The results indicate that CA students choice is driven mainly by job security, job satisfaction, aptitude for accounting and potential future earnings. Although a high percentage of non‐CA students have considered becoming a CA (61.6 per cent), they cite job satisfaction as one of the key reasons why they decided against a CA qualification. The two groups clearly have different views on job satisfaction. Another important reason the non‐CA group mentioned against CA studies, was the strenuous nature of this field, including the technical difficulty of the subjects and the lengthy period of study required. Significant differences between the CA and non‐CA group were evident when the means of the ratings of career choice factors were compared. All mean scores, for each of the 12 career choice factors, were higher for CA stream students, compared with the non‐CA stream students. A possible reason is that CA students are more career oriented than their non‐CA student counterparts.. ...

The Relationship of Job Satisfaction, Job Stress, Mental Health of Government and Non-Government Employees of Bangladesh
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship of job satisfaction, job stress and mental health on government and non-government employees. It was believed that there will have a significant difference between government and non-government employees in case of various job related factors. These factors affect job performance of employees. In this context it was important to know how job satisfaction, job stress and mental health differ in terms of types of jobs. Subjects in the study were 100 employees, 50 government and 50 non-government employees. Job Satisfaction Scale, Occupational Stress Index and General Health Questionnaire were used as data collection tools. Data were analyzed by using means, Pearson Product Moment Correlation and ANOVA test. The study found that there is a significant positive correlation between job stress and types of job (r = .282, P | .01). Significant job stress was found in case of non-government employees, because, they feel less job security and

Results 320 responses were received. Median (interquartile range) composite scores for emotional exhaustion were 25 (16-35), depersonalization 7 (4-12), and personal accomplishment 39 (35-44). 164/293 respondents (56%) met established criteria for burnout. There was no significant relationship between training background, practice setting, call frequency, or presence of a senior partner on burnout prevalence. Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that feeling underappreciated by hospital leadership (OR=3.71; p,0.001) and covering more than one hospital on call (OR=1.96; p=0.01) were strongly associated with burnout. Receiving additional compensation for a call was independently protective against burnout (OR= 0.70; p=0.005). ...
Work-family conflict, job satisfaction and spousal support: An exploratory study of nurses' experience
PATEL, CJ; BEEKHAN, A; PARUK, Z and RAMGOON, S. Work-family conflict, job satisfaction and spousal support: An exploratory study of nurses experience. Curationis [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.1, pp.38-44. ISSN 2223-6279.. In recognising the highly stressful nature of the nursing profession, the added burden of hospital staff shortages, and patient overload, the present study explored the impact of work on family functioning, its relationship to job satisfaction and the role of spousal support in a group of 80 female nurses working in a government hospital. Using a descriptive, correlational design, the relationships among job satisfaction, work-family conflict (WFC) and spousal/partner support were explored. The hypotheses that job satisfaction and WFC would be negatively correlated, that job satisfaction and spousal support would be positively correlated, and that WFC and spousal support would be negatively correlated, were tested using correlation techniques. All hypotheses were confirmed. The ...
Individual cognitions as antecedents of emotional competence and job satisfaction
A model linking cognitions to emotional competence is presented and tested. The model is based on the four domains of Emotional Intelligence (Goleman, 2002) and on the theoretical framework of Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy (Ellis, 1962, 1994). In this respect, we expect irrational beliefs to be negatively associated with both emotional competence and job satisfaction. Furthermore, we expect emotional competence to be positively associated with job satisfaction. Additionally, it is proposed that irrational beliefs mediate emotional competences influence on job satisfaction. We test our hypotheses using data from two different studies. Study 1 collected data from 113 respondents that answered an experimental questionnaire study using organizational scenarios. Study 2 collected data through a questionnaire using the Emotional Competence Inventory (ECI 2.0) as direct measure of emotional intelligence and competencies and an irrationality scale (Försterling & Bühner, 2003) as a measure for ...

Motivation and job satisfaction have been identified as key factors for health worker retention and turnover in low- and middle-income countries. District health managers in decentralized health systems usually have a broadened decision space that enables them to positively influence health worker motivation and job satisfaction, which in turn impacts on retention and performance at district-level. The findings indicate that effective human resource management practices at district level influence health worker motivation and job satisfaction, thereby reducing the likelihood for turnover. Therefore, it is worth strengthening human resource management skills at district level and supporting district health managers to implement retention strategies.. ...
