ABSTRACT

Purpose:This study aimed to examine the impact of resilience on perceived stress and burnout in public officials managing the COVID-19 response at public healthcare centers. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study that included 100 public officials who actively engaged in COVID-19 response efforts across 16 public healthcare centers in P Metropolitan City. In December 2021, data were collected using self-administered questionnaires comprising91items. Analytical proceduresincludeddescriptive statistics, t-tests, analysisof variance, Pearson’s correlation coefficients, and hierarchical regression analysis. Results: The analysis revealed a negative correlation between resilience and perceived stress (r=-.43, p<.001) and burnout (r=-.65, p<.001). Resilience accounted for 27.4-29.9%and49.8-50.9%of the variancein perceivedstressandburnout, respectively. Notably, the sub-factor of positivity within resilience significantly influenced perceived stress (p=.006) and burnout (p<.001). Conclusion: The findings underscore the pivotal role of resilience in mitigating perceived stress and burnout among public officials engaged in COVID-19 response efforts, particularly positivity. Consequently, the study recommends the implementation of programs aimed at nurturing positivity in daily routines to proactively prevent and alleviate stress and burnout during crisis among public officials in public healthcare centers.
