Tegegne KT*, Tegegne ET, Tessema MK and Bagajjo WS

The purpose of this meta-analysis was to assess the association between Gender and Burn out syndrome among health care workers in Ethiopia. Previous findings on the association of gender and burn out syndrome have reported different results. We use data from four studies to do a metaanalysis. We applied the random-effects analytic model and calculated a pooled odds ratio. The odds ratios for all studies revealed no statistically significant association of Burn out syndrome with Male relative to Female (OR = 1.15; 95% CI: 0.48-2.71, Heterogeneity: Tau² = 0.55; Chi² = 12.17, df = 3 (P = 0.007); I² = 75%, Test for overall effect: Z = 0.31 (P = 0.76). The proportion of Burn out syndrome among male and female health professionals is 31.31% (578). 35.43% (302) respectively. The overall proportion of Burn out syndrome among health professionals is 32.73% (880).
