Abstract
Since the end of the 1990’s the work-related psychological illness has increased in Sweden and the occupational group nurses has been greatly affected by this, for example by burnout. The purpose of this study was to examine how well work-family conflict (WFC) predicted burnout among Swedish nurses, if physical activity and shiftwork were moderating variables, and if age and marital status had any effect. WFC, physical activity and marital status have previously been shown to have a relationship with burnout. Concerning shiftwork and age, research shows conflicting results. 119 female and 3 male nurses between the ages of 23 and 68 at a division at Skånes Universitetssjukhus (SUS) participated in the survey.

To measure burnout the Shirom Melamed Burnout Questionnaire (SMBQ) was used. To measure the other variables already existing instruments and self-composed questions were used. The result showed that WFC was the strongest predictor for burnout and that physical activity and marital status also had an effect. For age and shiftwork there were no significance. The findings of the study supported previous research done for the effect of WFC and physical activity. The result showed no interaction effects between neither WFC and physical activity, nor WFC and shiftwork. Having a partner was shown to have a positive effect. A nurse that was single, physically inactive and experienced a high level of WFC was most prone to experience burnout. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Sedan slutet av 1990-talet har den arbetsrelaterade psykiska ohälsan ökat i Sverige och yrkesgruppen sjuksköterskor har drabbats hårt av detta, exempelvis genom utbrändhet. Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur väl work-family conflict (WFC) predicerade utbrändhet hos svenska sjuksköterskor, om fysisk aktivitet och skiftarbete var modererande variabler, samt om ålder och civilstånd hade någon påverkan. WFC, fysisk aktivitet och civilstånd har tidigare visats ha samband med utbrändhet. Gällande skiftarbete och ålder visar forskningen tvetydiga resultat. 119 kvinnliga och 3 manliga sjuksköterskor mellan åldrarna 23 och 68 på en division på Skånes Universitetssjukhus (SUS) deltog i enkätundersökningen.

WFC, fysisk aktivitet och civilstånd har tidigare visats ha samband med utbrändhet. Gällande skiftarbete och ålder visar forskningen tvetydiga resultat. 119 kvinnliga och 3 manliga sjuksköterskor mellan åldrarna 23 och 68 på en division på Skånes Universitetssjukhus (SUS) deltog i enkätundersökningen. För att mäta utbrändhet användes Shirom Melamed Burnout Questionnaire (SMBQ). För att undersöka de andra variablerna användes kända instrument samt egenkonstruerade frågor. Resultatet visade att WFC var den starkaste prediktorn för utbrändhet, samt att fysisk aktivitet och civilstånd också var påverkande faktorer. För ålder och skiftarbete sågs ingen signifikans. Resultatet stödde tidigare forskning som har gjorts på påverkan av WFC och fysisk aktivitet. Resultatet visade dock inga interaktionseffekter mellan varken WFC och fysisk aktivitet, eller WFC och skiftarbete. Att ha en partner visades ha en positiv inverkan på utbrändhet. En sjuksköterska som var singel, fysiskt inaktiv och upplevde en hög grad av WFC var mest benägen att bli utbränd. (Less)
