I was more than familiar with the twin beasts of stress and burnout as a Dental Professional. Jo Taylor’s last survey showed that it wasn’t just me (I think I really knew that but to see it in black and white was an awakening). Here’s news of her next bit of research with which YOU can help,.
Joanna Taylor undertook a survey on Stress in the Dental Team which was published in Dentistry Magazine in 2012. She is now following that up with a research project on “Happiness v Stess and Burnout in the Dental Profession”.
This is what Joanna has to say…
I would be very grateful for your help with a research project I am undertaking as part of my post-graduate studies for my Diploma in Psychotherapy. This survey is open to all qualified dentists. All data will be treated in the strictest confidence and will remain anonymous for the purposes of submission and any future publication of the research. I hope the results will go towards the creation of a system for positive change in the levels of stress and burnout amongst members of the dental profession in the future.
The survey should take between 5-15 minutes to complete and, if you choose to take part, you may opt out at any time; incomplete submissions will be deleted and will not form part of the research.
Although you are welcome for your answers to remain anonymous, I will be conducting further research and a pilot study later in the year based on the results of this survey, which will be looking at the creation of preventive measures against burnout in dentistry. If you feel that this might be something you could find of interest and you would like to take part, you are welcome to provide your e-mail address at the end of the survey and I will contact you with more information in due course.
Please follow this link to take you to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/happiness_vs_burnout_in_dentistry
Thank you so much to all those who choose to take part; your contribution is greatly appreciated. If you would like to know more about me and the work I do, you are welcome to visit my website at http://www.joanna-taylor.co.uk/
