OCCUPATIONAL WELL-BEING AND PSYCHO-SOCIAL RISK FACTORS IN HEALTHCARE WORKERS

The project concerns the study of the main psycho-social risk factors able to influence the occupational well-being of healthcare workers (e.g., physicians, nurses…).

The purpose of the analysis will be to identify which factors are able to higher the level of stress, in terms of both general (i.e. common to other professions) variables, such as workload, and specific factors, such as traumatic events and parents’ mistreatment. Personal resources, such as coping strategies and psychological capital, will be considered as possible moderators in the relationship between stressors and occupational well-being.

The study will be carried out in some hospitals of the Northern Italy, and the data could be analyzed together with those collected in a previous (recent) research carried out in other Italian hospitals. The project involves the use of statistical software SPSS (for basic and descriptive analyses) and MPlus (for mediation, moderation, and moderated mediation models).
