Editors: Jonathon R.B. Halbesleben (Department of Management and Marketing, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire)
Book Description:
The purpose of this book is to summarize the state of the science in the study of stress and burnout among health care professionals. Moreover, this books seeks to set the agenda for future research in the areas of stress and burnout. Despite the popularity of these topics as subjects for empirical study, particularly among health professionals, there has been no attempt to build a compreshensive summary of the literature concerning stress and burnout in health care. This book fills the void by bringing together leaders in the academic study of stress and burnout and by summarizing the research on the measurement of stress and burnout, the unique causes of this condition for health care professionals as well as the consquences of stress and burnout and the patients they serve. It covers evidence-based mechanisms for the prevention and reduction of stress and burnout. Each chapter provides a synthesis of the critical stress and burnout literature as well as ideas for what research is needed to fill current voids in the literature. The final chapter of the book provides a research agenda to promote research concerning this phenomena in health professions.
