Abstract

ObjectiveThis study was aimed to determine the relationship between job stress and work-related quality of life (WRQoL) among emergency medical technicians (EMTs) in Lorestan province, Western Iran.DesignThis was a cross-sectional study.MethodsTotally 430 EMTs who had been engaged in their respective units for more than 6months from all emergency facilities in Lorestan province were selected using single stage cluster sampling method. Data were collected from April to July 2019 using two standard questionnaires: job stress (Health and Safety Executive (HSE)) and WRQoL. The OR with 95 CI was used to declare the statistical association (p <= 0.05).ResultsAll participants were exclusively males, with a mean age of 326.87 years. The overall average score of job stress using the HSE scale was 2.69 +/- 0.43; while the overall quality of working life score was 2.48 +/- 1.01. The type of working shift was found to have a significant impact on the HSE-average score (F(3,417)=5.26, p=0.01); and on the WRQoL-average score (F(3,417)=6.89, p<0.01).ConclusionTwo-thirds of EMTs working in governmental hospitals had job stress and a low quality of work-related life. Additionally, work shift was statistically significant associated with EMTs' job stress and WRQoL.
