Abstract

Objective: To analyze the relationship between administrative burden and intrinsic motivation and between administrative burden and professional well-being among family and community medicine physicians. To analyze the extent to which attention to three basic needs (autonomy, sense of competence and relationship capacity) that one of the main motivation theories identifies as a generator of intrinsic motivation compensates for the negative effect of the administrative burden. To compare management models. Method: Data from a survey (542 valid questionnaires) carried out through the Catalan Society of Family and Community Medicine are used. Data analysis is based on multiple regression and ANOVA techniques. Results: The perception of administrative burden and “red tape” are clearly demotivating and reduce job satisfaction. On the contrary, individual autonomy, networking opportunities between professionals and performance feedback are motivating and feed the perception of professional well-being. The EBA (Association Based Entity) model presents results above the ICS (Catalan Health Institute) and OSI (Integrated Health Organizations) models both in controlling the negative effect of administrative burden and in the management of basic psychological needs. Conclusions: The motivation and professional well-being of primary care physicians would benefit from reforms that limit the administrative burden of some procedures and red tape. At the primary health center level, greater attention to individual autonomy, improving relatedness between professionals and the sense of competence based on better information on individual performance can offset the negative effects of the administrative burden.
