Relationship between psychosocial strains at the workplace, depression, and cognitive deficiencies

The subject of mental disorders and work is of high priority for occupational safety and health, in particular where job stresses lead to depression and impairment of work ability. Factors potentially contributing to depression and work ability impairment include psychosocial work characteristics (PWC), burnout, cognitive deficits, and aging. Referencing the Job-Demand Resources (JD-R) model, burnout is viewed as mediating the association between PWC and depressive symptoms, but the mediating relationship between PWC and work ability remains to be tested. Further, cognitive deficits may be a marker for chronic problems with burnout, depression and work ability. The current project studied how these factors relate to one another, based on a sample of 402 working nurses in a large private health system in the United States.
