Abstract

Introduction: Burnout syndrome (BOS) or burnout is related to the progressive loss of energy, lack of motivation, and mental, emotional and physical exhaustion. The objective of the present study was to identify the effectiveness of an educational intervention aimed at caregivers with different levels of burnout caring for institutionalized elderly individuals.

Materials and Methods: This quasi-experimental, single group pretest–posttest study included 18 caregivers from 5 nursing homes in which burnout level was measured using the Burnout Syndrome Evaluation Questionnaire (i.e., CESQT), data collection took place in September to November 2018 and January to February 2019 and the educational intervention and the process evaluation which took place in March to October 2019.

 Results: After concluding the participation in the educational intervention, most caregivers reported very low-to-medium levels, with only 2 (11.1%) reporting high burnout levels.

Conclusion: BOS occurs in caregivers of institutionalized elderly adults, particularly in medium-to-severe burnout. Educational interventions are important for burnout prevention; however, other determining factors should also be considered.
