Motivation and well-being in humanitarian health workers
Using Self-Determination Theory as a basis, Ms Tassell examined the effects of different kinds of motivation on well-being. Questionnaires and interviews were used to look specifically at the development of burnout in humanitarian health workers and motivation was indeed found to directly affect whether burnout develops. The findings could be used in the design and implementation of recruitment strategies for these workers, as well as programs aimed at the treatment and prevention of burnout, both pre- and post-deployment.
