NASCIMENTO SOBRINHO, Carlito Lopes et al. Work conditions and mental health among doctors from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2006, vol.22, n.1, pp.131-140. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2006000100014.

This cross-sectional study investigated the association between work conditions and minor psychological disorders (MPD) in a random sample of 350 doctors from Salvador City, State of Bahia, Brazil. Data were gathered using an individual, self-report questionnaire that incorporated the demand-control model (Job Content Questionnaire) to evaluate psychosocial aspects of the doctors' work and the Self-report Questionnaire (SRQ-20) to evaluate their mental health. The study found increased work overload, overtime and extended work shifts, multiple jobs, low income per hour worked, and unstable work arrangements with payment per procedure. The prevalence of MPD was 26.0% and was more strongly associated with aspects of the psychological demands of work than with the doctors' control over it. Doctors with high strain (high demand and low control) jobs showed MPD prevalence of 3.07 (95%IC: 1.38-6.85) times higher than those in low strain (low demand and high control) jobs.
