Self-Assessment of Professional Activity and Emotional Burnout Among Psychiatrists and Narcologists

Keywords: psychiatrists, narcologists, job satisfaction, interaction of specialists, emotional burnout

The present article deals with an actual problem of medicine – emotional burnout among the staff. Among all professions, it is medical workers that are the most exposed to the development of this phenomenon. The authors analyzed the level of satisfaction with the chosen specialty among psychiatrists and narcologists of Ivanovo and Yaroslavl regions, assessed their working conditions, peculiarities of interaction with related specialists, the motives for multiple jobholding as well as correlation of these parameters with emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and reduction of professional achievements. The results of the study find a significant connection between negative perception of working conditions and individual prospects in the profession with the phenomenon of emotional burnout. Multiple jobholding is typical more for psychiatrists than for narcologists, more often the reasons for multiple jobholding are financial dissatisfaction, less often – desire for novelty. All doctors are interested in referring the patient to additional consultations with related specialists, especially psychotherapists and psychologists. Significant differences in subjective assessing the working conditions between regions are revealed, Yaroslavl region is positively leading. Regret about choosing a specialty is connected with all parameters of emotional exhaustion and is more often observed in psychiatrists of Ivanovo region.
