Aims: Medical staff are in close contact with patients with COVID-19 and they experience burnout, fear, anxiety and depression. Burnout can seriously endanger the mental and physical health of health care workers. The aim of this study was to evaluate the burnout of medical staff during the outbreak of Covid-19 disease by systematic review.
Methods: The present study, based on the PRISMA protocol, searched for the keywords "burnout, medical staff and Covid-19" in the PubMed and ScienceDirect databases and the Google Scholar search engine from January 1 to December 30, 2020.
Findings: 10 articles entered the analysis stage. Based on the analyzed studies, the results of six studies refer to the high level of burnout, two studies refer to the level of moderate to severe burnout and two studies refer to the moderate level of burnout.
Conclusion: The results of the study confirm the burnout of medical staff in Covid-19 that due to lack of disease control, medical staff are at greater risk in the future. Given the prevalence of burnout among health care workers and its consequences, it is imperative that health planners and policymakers adopt appropriate methods and techniques such as increasing personal protective equipment, creating a self-employed alternative workforce, providing recruiting and replacing manpower. Provide adequate social support and ensure the willingness of front-line medical staff to work to prevent this phenomenon.
