Abstract (summary)

The burden of occupational burnout and musculoskeletal pain on medical laboratory professionals (LPs) is understudied in the United States. This research explores the relationships with burnout, musculoskeletal pain, and turnover intention within the context of LPs work. A national sample of LPs were asked to complete an electronic survey, and focus groups were conducted in rural and urban practice settings. Burnout due to work was present and related to psychosocial factors of work among LPs, where those whose effort-reward imbalance was >1 showed increased odds of burnout (OR= 4.56, 95% CI: 2.12-9.81). LPs reported experiencing musculoskeletal pain in the past week, with most reporting pain in wrists/hands. LPs in the 45-64 age group had five times the odds of reporting pain in the past week (95% CI:1.15-22.6). Management practices that encouraged or countered turnover intention were related to staffing levels, resource availability, and length of work shifts.
