Abstract

The survey was sent to 1971 surgeons from 127 National Health Service (NHS) hospital trusts across the United Kingdom. Burnout prevalence and mood were assessed using the Maslach Burnout Inventory-General Survey and Profile of Mood States (POMS), respectively. Demographic and POMS factors were investigated as predictors of burnout using linear and stepwise regression analyses. Results: Responses to the survey were received from 342 surgeons (17% response rate).
