Oktay, Julianne S.
Social Work, v37 n5 p432-39 Sep 1992
Surveyed 128 hospital social workers who worked with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) patients. Found that hospital AIDS social workers had slightly higher rates of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization on Maslach Burnout Inventory but also felt substantially higher level of personal accomplishment. Age, autonomy, and belonging to support group explained 19% of variance. (Author/NB)
