Negative religious 'Spirituality' related to depression in physicians

University of Cincinnati (UC) researchers revealed that residents who have negative religious and spiritual characteristics have higher risk for depressive symptoms.//

The study was done by collection of data through surveys which said that the risk for significant depressive symptoms was greater among respondents who reported negative religious coping mechanisms, poorer spiritual well-being and the need for more spiritual support.

Ambulatory Pediatrics edition of March-April 2006, found that 25 percent of 227 primary-care residents surveyed reported a number of symptoms associated with depression such as irritability, sense of isolation and hopelessness, and fear.

Principal investigator Michael Yi, MD said, "Research from the last two decades has shown the prevalence of significant depressive symptoms among residents to be in the range of 20 percent. We might have expected that number to fall after the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) implemented work-hour restrictions in 2003, but our study found the level to be pretty consistent with earlier data."

Dr. Yi said, "Mood or other psychological problems among primary-care residents, or any other health-care provider for that matter, could negatively affect patient care. Our findings suggest that screening residents for depression and other mood problems may be warranted. In addition, addressing the spiritual needs of residents at greater risk for mood problems may help them cope with the stresses associated with their training."
