Étude du stress perçu et de l'empathie chez les internes de médecine générale d'Aquitaine

Abstract : Background : Medical practitioners are subject to high levels of stress. Empathy is an important quality for carers.The purpose of this study is to show if there exists a relation between perceived stress and empathy. We also looked for factors that might influence these variables. Method : Longitudinal quantitative study among general medicine résidents at the beginning of their resident course in Aquitaine in 2013. We submitted in 4 occasions to the residents: the PSS 14 and 4, the GMRSS, the JSE, the QCAE and the TIPI. The statistical analysis took care of the longitudinal data. Results : We haven't found a statistically significant correlation between the PSS and GMRSS and the JSE scores. We observed a positive statistically significant correlation between the score differences on two occasions for the JSE and the subscale "medical accountability" of the GMRSS. Some personality traits have a significant impact on PSS score and JSE score. Gender has a significant impact on our sample for these two surveys. Conclusions : It doesn't seem that there is a link between perceived stress with PSS score and empathy with JSE score. However medical arousability might influence empathy among resident by increasing it. More research is needed.
