GIANNINI, Susana Pimentel Pinto; LATORRE, Maria do Rosário Dias de Oliveira  e  FERREIRA, Leslie Piccolotto. Voice disorders related to job stress in teaching: a case-control study . Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.11, pp.2115-2124. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2012001100011.

This case-control study aimed to test the association between voice disorders and job stress among public schoolteachers in São Paulo, Brazil. The groups consisted of teachers with (n = 165) and without (n = 105) voice-related complaints. Both groups answered the questionnaires Conditions of Vocal Production and Job Stress Scale. Analysis of cases and controls showed comparable samples, differing only by vocal symptoms. There was a statistically significant difference between cases and controls in relation to job stress involving high strain (OR = 2.1; 95%CI: 1.1-3.9), which places high demands combined with low job control. High strain in cases in this study represents the highest risk of physical and mental disorders for teachers. Loss of voice prevents teachers from continuing in their professional role, eliminates their professional identity, and jeopardizes their career.
