Table 4 Burnout’s relationship with other work outcomes in pediatric nurses

From: What is known about paediatric nurse burnout: a scoping review

Author(s)Number of pediatric nursesBurnout outcomes
Alves and Guirardello [27]267Higher EE associated with the outcome of a worse patient safety climate
Aytekin et al. [29]85Higher burnout associated with the outcome of decreased quality of life in the nurse
Czaja et al. [37]173Higher burnout and PTSD were found in nurses considering a change of career, more frequently screened positive for anxiety and depression, were more likely to respond negatively regarding their team members, teamwork, and impact of their work
A large portion of nurses with both burnout and significant PTSD symptoms found their symptoms interfered with their work and personal lives
Dos Santos Alves et al. [39]267Lower burnout associated with the outcome of positive assessments of the safety climate
Günüşen et al. [48]117Secondary traumatic stress (STS) predicted 17% of EE
STS predicted 28% of DP
STS did not predict PA significantly
Latimer et al. [58]27Higher burnout associated with nurses with higher secondary trauma
Li et al. [60]251Higher likelihood of burnout with higher levels of PTSD
Burnout development secondary to PTSD symptoms may be mitigated by group cohesion
Lin et al. [63]144Higher burnout associated with the outcome of statistically significant influence on depression levels
Meadors et al. [66]23Higher burnout associated with the outcome of higher levels of compassion fatigue
Meyer et al. [16]251Higher burnout predicated by compassion fatigue after controlling for pre-existing stress exposure
Higher burnout predicated by current stress exposure after controlling for pre-existing stress exposure
Mediated association: current stress exposure predicted higher levels of compassion fatigue which then predicted higher levels of burnout after 3 months of bedside
Exposure
Morrison Wylde et al. [70]95Higher burnout associated with PTSD symptoms and compassion fatigue
Moussa and Mahmood [71]55Increased PA associated with the outcome of an increase in the mother’s satisfaction with meeting the child’s needs and expectations
Skorobogatova et al. [89]94Burnout associated with the symptom of tiredness
Tawfik et al. [96]1 464Higher burnout found in understaffed units with the outcome of higher infection rates during times when nurses feel overworked (likely when attention to infection prevention decreases)
