ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship of work-related stress with work life variables using The Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI) and Brief Coping Styles Inventory (BCSI). A survey was conducted among hospital staff (n = 152) of a university teaching hospital in Turkey, which included 47 questions on sociodemographic variables and lifestyle and 19 questions from the Work-life Evaluation Scales. Females had higher depression and anxiety scores than did males; graduates of university programs (mostly nurses) had higher scores on a number of subscales than did other respondents of other educational levels; and staff who were employed by the university (i.e., residents and nurses) had higher BSI symptom scores. Overall, even though the respondents did not seem generally to be dissatisfied concerning their work-life, the majority of staff had depressive symptoms and were distressed.
