Abstract

The present study details the development of a stress scale for medical personnel. The Medical Personnel Stress Scale is a 48-item subjective stress measure capable of assessing both organizational and individual dimensions of stress. It demonstrated both the ability to discriminate between divergent medical emergency room organizations and to predict self reported on-the-job difficulties.
