Abstract [en]

Modern health worries (MHW), defined as the concern people experience over the consequences modern life could have on their health, and burnout bring negative consequences for the well-being of individuals regarding mental and physical health. This survey is based on longitudinal data from the Västerbotten Environmental Health Study (n = 2336) with the aim to investigate whether there is an association between MHW and burnout using data from two different data collections (T1 = 2010 and T2 = 2013). The study examined correlation and predictive association with control variables sex, age, marital status, educational level, sleep quality, stress, anxiety and depression. The data showed a weak correlation between MHW and burnout at the same test occasion. After the inclusion of control variables there was no significant correlation between MHW and burnout. No predictive relationship between MHW and burnout could be found. On the other hand, both MHW and burnout turned out to correlate with age and anxiety. The weak correlation between MHW and burnout is thus considered mainly to be due to an association with anxiety. The result also showed that burnout correlated with age, depression, stress, sleep quality and anxiety and was predicted by sex, education, burnout (T1) and anxiety. The results further showed that MHW correlated with anxiety, age and sex and was predicted by age, sex and MHW (T1). In line with the study result, the importance of investigating comorbidity was discussed as it is common in mental illness.

Key words: modern health worries (MHW), burnout, sleep quality, stress, anxiety, depression

Abstract [sv]

Modern hälsooro (MHO), vilket definieras som den oro som människor upplever kring hur det moderna livet får konsekvenser för deras hälsa, och utbrändhet medför båda negativa konsekvenser för individers välmående gällande såväl psykisk som fysisk hälsa. Denna enkätstudie byggde på longitudinella data från Västerbotten Environmental Health Study (n=2336) och syftade till att undersöka om det finns ett samband mellan MHO och utbrändhet med hjälp av data från två olika testtillfällen (T1 = 2010 och T2 = 2013). Studien undersökte samvariation och prediktiva samband med kontrollvariablerna civilstånd, kön, utbildningsnivå, ålder, depression, stress, sömnkvalitet och ångest. Resultatet visade ett svagt samband mellan MHO och utbrändhet vid samma testtillfälle. Efter inkluderandet av kontrollvariablerna kvarstod inget samband. Inga prediktiva samband mellan MHO och utbrändhet gick att finna. Däremot samvarierade både MHO och utbrändhet med ålder och ångest. Det svaga sambandet mellan MHO och utbrändhet anses därmed bero på samvariation med främst ångest. Resultatet visade även att utbrändhet samvarierade med ålder, depression, stress, sömnkvalitet och ångest samt predicerades av kön, utbildning, utbrändhet (T1) och ångest. Resultatet visade vidare att MHO samvarierade med ångest, ålder och kön samt predicerades av kön, ålder och MHO (T1). I linje med studiens resultat diskuterades vikten av att undersöka komorbiditet då det är vanligt vid psykisk ohälsa.
