Abstract

An extended rationale borrowed from configurational conceptual contributions was used to test multiple possible linkages (or profiles) between certain personal, organizational, and cultural variables that affect burnout vs. vigor. A self-administered questionnaire of 1509 physicians working in the Swedish and Spanish public hospitals was used. Standardized job/work demands were employed in conjunction with the Uppsala Burnout scale. A combination of ANOVAs and "classification and regression tree analyses" was utilized. Results show an architecture that predicts more than 50% of the explained variance and also reveals two "tree branches" with distinct profiles. Better understanding of the precursors to burnout/vigor is proposed.
