BECERRA-OSTOS, Luisa F.; QUINTANILLA, Daissy; VASQUEZ, Ximena A.  and  RESTREPO-GUERRERO, Héctor F.. Psychosocial determinants associated to work stress pathologies in administrative staff in an EPS of Bogotá. Rev. salud pública [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.5, pp.574-578. ISSN 0124-0064.


To identify and determine the factors that affect the onset of noncommunicable mental disorders in the area of public and/or occupational health in people who work in a healthcare service provider (EPS in Spanish) in the city of Bogotá D.C Colombia.


This is a descriptive study with a random sample of 50 employees. The survey Factor de Riesgo Psicosocial (Psychosocial Risk Factor) developed by Guillermo Bocanument was applied as a research tool.


The main variables identified include the significant effects of psychosocial risk factors, such as the increased likelihood of suffering from a noncommunicable disease due to workload and/or working under pressure, as well as the incidence in the onset of occupational diseases and stress.


Several actions have been proposed to mitigate the identified risks associated with the spread of no communicable and/or work-related illnesses. In fact, their implementation has contributed to reduce excessive workloads or improve the quality of life of the workers.
