  Title Sources of stress for chiropractors in private practice
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2006 Jun;36(2):51-57
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes This research sought to identify the individual and work characteristics that were related to the frequency of stressful events for chiropractors in Victoria, and to identify the sources of stress. Data were collected from 305 Victorian chiropractors using questionnaires that were completed anonymously. Seven sources of work stress were identified using principal component analysis of the Health Professionals Stress Inventory (HPSI). The results demonstrated that chiropractors in practice for over 20 years experienced fewer stressful incidents at work than their younger colleagues. Practice experience was negatively associated with stressful incidents from dealing with patient care and conflict. Chiropractors seeing more than 150 patients per week reported fewer stressful incidents than those with fewer than 150 patient visits per week. Increasing patient numbers per week was largely beneficial, demonstrating a negative association with stressful incidents dealing with personal job opportunities, patient care, and professional performance. The only shortcoming of a busier practice was more conflict issues. The results highlight the importance of experience in clinical practice and that busier practices are largely associated with fewer stressful work incidents.
