dc.description.abstractIntroduction: Nursing is inevitably a demanding and stressful job. Extra stressors like burnout have a severe impact on nurses’ wellbeing, patient safety, and the health organization as a whole. Oncology nursing has been described as one of the most stressful specialty areas (Lederberg, 1989). The oncology field is a complex environment in which to work because it requires nurses who are educated, skilled, and clinically competent to care for patients with cancer. Therefore oncology nurses are valuable resources in the healthcare system. Aim: The aim of the study is to assess burnout level and reasons behind leaving the work at oncology /hematology departments; and to identify their predictors. Methodology: The study population is 230 Palestinian oncology /hematology nurses, the response rate were above 93% .The researcher used a descriptive analytic cross sectional design. The MBI-HSS was used to assess burnout in the study participants. The AWS was used in conjunction with the MBI-HSS to assess the six areas of the work environment that influence burnout Result: The study observed that almost (57.2%) of Oncology/Hematology nurses in Palestinian hospitals had an average level of burnout. Lack of positive reinforcement represented the main source of burnout of the participants (M 3.38 SD 0.90), while the power of labor is the less source (M 2.42 SD 0.72) . Additionally, almost 53% of the participants indicated their intention to leave the department (to another ward) (M 2.65 SD1.43) The findings revealed that place of residency, income and educational level do not,indicate any significant difference, However, it was found that gender, marital status, working system, hospital name and job title are significant variables. Besides, a statistical significant positive correlation was found between the burnout level sub-scales(emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment scores and the intention to leave the department (to another ward) among Oncology/Hematology nurses in Palestinian hospitals, Moreover, the findings revealed that the demographic variables do not indicate any significant difference in the intention to leave the department (to another ward) among Oncology/Hematology nurses in Palestinian hospitals. Conclusion: Burnout among oncology /hematology nurses is a serious issue. Results from this study indicate that burnout is a manageable condition which can also beprevented. Good management and leadership, development of nurse practice environment, stress reduction interventions, good lifestyle choices, emotional intelligence, emotion and problem focused coping strategies are linked to high job satisfaction, less stress and therefore reduce the likelihood of burnout among oncology /hematology nurses and this will achieve the optimal level of retention rates.
