Abstract

Lack of job satisfaction can lead to more dysfunction and errors in personnel work. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of work stress, coping strategies, resilience, and mental health and their preventive role on job satisfaction in a sample of anesthesia technicians. Â Materials and Methods: In a cross-sectional study that was conducted in 2010, convenient sampling was used for selecting 120 anesthesia technicians who are working in hospital surgery rooms in Tehran and Iran universities of medical sciences. Participation and continuation in the research project was voluntary. All subjects completed these questionnaires: Job stress scale (JSS), Moos and Billing's coping style questionnaire, Conner-Davidson resilience scale (CD-RISC), general health questionnaire (GHQ), and job satisfaction-dissatisfaction scale (JSDS). Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation and stepwise multiple regression. Â Results: There was a negative significant correlation between job stress, physical inhibition coping strategy, and low mental health with job satisfaction (P<0.05). Also, there was a positive significant correlation between resilience, social support and problem-focused coping strategies with job satisfaction (P<0.05). Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed a positive significant role for problem-focused coping strategy and a negative significant role for job stress in predicting job satisfaction of anesthesia technicians (P<0.01). Â Conclusion: Reducing job stress and increasing the use of problem focused coping strategy can lead to more job satisfaction in anesthesia technicians. Â
