Abstract

Objectives: To identify the prevalence and factors associated with work-related stress and Burnout syndrome among nursing professionals working in oncology. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study done with 231 nursing professionals who worked at a High Complexity Oncology Center in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from December 2013 to June 2015. Work-related stress was assessed using the Workplace Stress Scale and Burnout syndrome by the Maslach Burnout Inventory. Results: The prevalence of Work-Related Stress of moderate/intense intensity was 75.8% and 38.9% of professionals had Burnout Syndrome. There was an increase in the prevalence of Work-Related Stress with advancing age [40-49, PR:1.61 (95%CI:1.01-2.55) and ≥ 50 years, PR:1.78 (95%CI: %:1.10-2.90)], with a positive history of accident [PR:1.29 (CI95%:1.06-1.60)] and physical or verbal aggression [PR:1.50 (CI95% :1.24-1.82)] during hospital work. The presence of Burnout syndrome was also associated with these variables, in addition to self-reported stress [PR:1.14 (95%CI:1.05-1.23)].  Conclusion: Work-related stress and Burnout syndrome were associated with antecedents related to the work environment and age, showing common variables in the occurrence of these comorbidities.
