Outils d'évaluation des contraintes psychosociales et organisationnelles des médecins : une revue systématique de la littérature

Abstract : Objective: The suffering of physicians at work is associated with rates of depression, burnout and suicide mortality higher than those of the general population. The aim of this study is to evaluate the tools that have been used or developed to measure psychosocial and organizational factors at work (POW factors) among physicians. Methods: A systematic review of the literature was conducted by querying the MEDLINE, PsycARTICLES and PsycINFO databases for the period 1985-2017. Criteria for inclusion of articles were as follows: (a) the study aims to measure work-related psychosocial and organizational factors; (b) the study uses at least one validated questionnaire and involves physicians as a relevant target group; (c) articles were written in English or French. Results: Nineteen articles out of 67 records were reviewed and 12 questionnaires analysed. Four of them measure several dimensions of the POW concept and present a good internal consistency. Eight questionnaires refer to narrower concepts and cover a limited number of dimensions of the POW concept. No tool specifically validated in physicians has been identified. Conclusions: Our results help prevention stakeholders in the choice of questionnaires evaluating physicians’ POW factors. They also suggest the need to develop a valid and relevant multidimensional measurement tool that covers POW factors as a whole.
