Author(s): Ferda ALPER AY, Buse Tilbe ICEN

The Covid-19 epidemic continues its effects all over the world. The aim of this study is to determine the Covid-19 anxiety and burnout levels experienced by healthcare professionals who are at the forefront during the Covid-19 pandemic process and to determine the effect of Covid-19 anxiety on burnout. 

In the study, an online questionnaire was applied to 388 healthcare professionals working in Adana City Training and Research Hospital between 22 March and 25 June 2021.  

In the analysis of the data were used explanatory factor analysis, t test, anova test, correlation and regression analyzes.  In the research findings, it was determined that the levels of Covid-19 anxiety and burnout were high in general. It was determined that female employees experienced more Covid-19 anxiety and the burnout levels of physicians, nurses and midwives were higher in terms of profession. In addition, it has been determined that there are positive and significant relationships between Covid-19 anxiety and burnout, and that Covid-19 anxiety affects burnout positively. 

As a result, health managers should be employee-centered and necessary support should be provided in order to reduce the anxiety and burnout caused by the pandemic environment while making their decisions. Sustainable health care is primarily possible with health workers.
