Assessing Burnout : A Part from The Book Chapter : Examining Burnout Experiences among Employees in Health Systems

Maslach Burnout Inventory

Several instruments are available to assess burnout. One of the most widely used instruments is the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), which scores burnout based on the dimensions of EE, depersonalization, and efficiency. Another instrument is the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory (OLBI); similar to the MBI, the OLBI splits burnout scores into the EE and depersonalization dimensions. To reduce bias, the OLBI uses both positively and negatively worded questions, unlike the MBI. However, because the MBI and its abbreviated versions has been widely validated among different audiences, including healthcare personnel, an abbreviated version of the MBI was used to assess burnout.
