Abstract

Objective: The aim of the present study is to identify the levels of occupational stress across different types of setting, years of experience, and age. Design: A questionnaire-based observational research design using the audiology occupational stress questionnaire (AOSQ) was used. Study sample: The sample comprised of audiologists registered under the Indian Speech and Hearing Association. The questionnaire was sent via personal email to 400 audiologists, of which 100 responded. Results: Descriptive statistics and chi-square analysis were carried out. Participants in both the groups experienced stress to some extent, with more stress reported in private practitioners. Conclusion: This study helps to identify certain factors that contribute towards work-related stress. These in turn have an impact on the overall professional output of a professional.
