Tóm tắt

The COVID-19 pandemic posed a significant challenge to healthcare workers (HCWs), resulting in adverse effects on their mental health. This study aims to identify post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related factors among healthcare workers in Da Nang, 2021. A cross-sectional study was conducted among 230 healthcare workers through a purposive sampling. The Impact of Event Scale-Revised (IES-R) was used to measure post-traumatic stress disorder. The prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder among healthcare workers in this study was 33.04% (95% CI: 27.00 – 39.53). The levels of post-traumatic stress disorder were categorized into four groups: normal (57.83%), clinically concerning (9.13%), post-traumatic stress disorder (6.52%), and extreme symptoms (26.52%). Gender, age group, living status, workplace and risk of exposure to COVID-19 were significantly associated at p-value < 0.05. This study revealed a significant presence of post-traumatic stress disorder among the healthcare workers in the sample. Additional support should be provided to healthcare workers in order to address and mitigate the impact of PTSD due to COVID-19.
