The presence of extensive workload and pressure associated with COVID19 has resulted in a lot of mental and physical trauma in primary health care physicians (PHCC) across the world.
The present study is aimed at understanding the level of dissatisfaction in PHCC physicians in the Asser region of Saudi Arabia. The various risk factors associated with dissatisfaction also have been analyzed in this study.
An analytical cross-sectional study was performed on various PHCCs who were working in the Ministry of Health in the Asser region.
The overall analysis showed that around 73% of the physicians who responded showed dissatisfaction. The major factors that were found to affect satisfaction based on the variables analyzed include physicians who are males, Saudi Nationals, training residents, and those who received recognition. These four variables had a p value of less than 0.0001 making it statistically significant.
The study observed that there is dissatisfaction amongst PHCC physicians towards the management of pandemics. The factors identified should help officials in order to address these issues
