Abstract :The aim of this study was to clarify the current status of occupational stress derived from the work environment of three types of professional staff (public health nurses etc, certified social workers, and chief care managers) in community general support centers, and to obtain suggestions for improvement through a comparative investigation of the various different questionnaire items. Three anonymous, self-administered survey forms were sent by post to 1,134 centers (378 directly managed public centers and 756 commissioned centers). The number of valid responses was 1,611 (47.4%). The results of the survey clarified the following points: (1) Work stress increased with higher intensity and experience rate of stressors with quantitative and systemic causes. Certified social workers had the lowest total score for workplace stress of the three professions. (2) Certified social workers scored higher in all items of work motivation than the other two professions. (3) The items affecting the level of workplace stress were clarified for each profession. (4) No major differences were found between the professions with respect to the care system. For workplace stress, quantitative and systemic factors were major common factors, suggesting that the work of these three professions will continue to be affected by future revisions to the long-term care insurance system. This is an unavoidable situation that individual professionals cannot control through their own endeavors. Such workplace stress cannot be readily improved or reduced.
