Abstract

Background: Emergency physicians are exposed daily to many workplace stressors; hence, this study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of anxiety level amongst emergency physicians in comparison to physicians from other departments. Methods: This is a 1-year period cross-sectional study that determined the anxiety level of 140 physicians from different departments at Bahrain Defense Force (BDF) Hospital by using the Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7-item scale. This study was done from (May 2019 until April 2020). Results: Overall, almost half of the participants had minimal level of anxiety and only 5.7% had severe anxiety level. The radiologists showed the highest anxiety level (mean 7.80), while emergency physicians had scored a mean of 5.63. In addition, the anxiety level was seen more prevalent amongst junior physicians with a mean of 6.26 and amongst female residents with a mean of 6.38. Conclusion: This study concluded that the average of anxiety level amongst BDF physicians was not high and that some departments had higher anxiety level than emergency department physicians.
