A sample of 194 Italian healthcare providers working in HIV / AIDS units was assessed to determine if there was a correlation between individual variables (socio-demographic and professional characteristics, personality traits, anxiety, depression, attitudes and reactions emotional) and burnout and job satisfaction. For this proposal, we used Maslach Burnout's inventory (MBI), a calendar of socio-demographic and professional characteristics, the questionnaire on personality factors sixteen, the anxiety scale Ipat, the depression scale Ipat and the AIDS impact questionnaire. A principal component analysis of the MBI frequency subscale scores extracted two independent dimensions called "burnout" and "personal achievement". The results suggest important correlations between "burnout", "personal achievement", anxiety and depression. Caregiver age was negatively correlated with burnout and licensed practical nurses were less accomplished. Anxiety, depression, emotional reactions, attitudes, ego strength, interpersonal and teamwork skills were important factors in defining a highly HIV / AIDS caregiver profile. `` exhausted '' and `` personally accomplished ''. These results suggest the development of specific strategies for the prevention, intervention and treatment of burnout, taking into account not only the importance of professional and institutional characteristics but also of individuals.
