Abstract: Burnout syndrome refers to a type of chronic stress derived from work that is associated with the development of negative feelings and attitudes towards work. Although the WHO has recently recognized this syndrome as an occupational disease, Spain still does not accept it as an occupational disease. Although this syndrome affects all types of workers, research has focused on its incidence in care workers, especially healthcare professionals. Currently, with the health crisis, interest has reawakened in how the health crisis has affected the incidence of this syndrome in health care workers. The main objective of this work is to study the impact of the pandemic on the Burnout levels of healthcare workers on the island of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), for this purpose a scientific investigation has been carried out on several professional categories within different work centers; tools such as the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) which measures emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and personal effectiveness, and the Questionnaire to Evaluate Burnout at Work (CESQT) which adds a dimension that measures feelings of guilt have been used for this investigation. The main results of the study show that the levels of Burnout in healthcare workers have shot up due to the pandemic, highlighting the high levels of depersonalization. It is evidenced that a high percentage of the sample presents feelings of guilt associated with their behaviors and attitudes and it is concluded that the professional category of nursing assistants is the one that presents the worst levels of Burnout. The study concludes that there is an immediate urgency to recognize this syndrome as a disease in order to establish protocols and preventive actions.
