Introduction: Burnout is considered to be a job related problem that is associated with complications including decreased job performance, and physical and psychological disorders. Burnout dimensions include the emotional exhaustion (EE), depersonalization (DP) and personal accomplishment (PA). Due to the importance of burnout and its negative impacts on individual and organization, the present study would evaluate the prevalence of burnout in Iran using systematic review and meta-analysis. Materials and Methods: The present study has been done based on PRISMA protocol for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses. The information was obtained from searching standard Persian and English keywords in accessible databases including: Scopus, Magiran, SID, Science Direct, Google scholar and PubMed from database commencement to April 2017. The metaregression was performed to evaluate the relationship between the year of the study and burnout. Data Analysis was performed using Stata software version 11.1., and p value was considered less than 0.05. Results: In the systematic review 43 studies met the inclusion criteria, and 9456 people were evaluated. The prevalence of burnout was calculated in any of the three dimensions of burnout. The prevalence of the Emotional Exhaustion (EE) dimension of burnout was36 (95CI: 29-42), the Depersonalization (DP) dimension was23 (95CI: 18-29) and the Personal Accomplishment (PA) dimension was46 (95CI: 39-53). Based on the type of the job, the maximum prevalence of the EE, DP and PA dimensions was in librarians 67 (95CI:40-93), university staff 51 (14-88) and dentists 72(95CI:65-79), respectively. Meta regression results showed that there was no significant relationship between the year of publication and the prevalence of burnout. Conclusion: According to the prevalence of burnout in Iran and the high prevalence of the PA dimension, it is recommended to consider mediating strategies for reducing and controlling stressful occupational events and burnout in organizational schedule.
