About Copenhagen Burnout Inventory
The Copenhagen Burnout Inventory is an instrument specifically developed for the Project on Burnout, Motivation and Job Satisfaction (PUMA) project, a five-year prospective intervention study on burnout in the human service sector conducted by the National Research Centre for the Working Environment (formerly the National Institute of Occupational Health), Denmark in 1999. It focuses on exhaustion and its attribution by the person. It has scales on personal burnout, work-related burnout and client-related* burnout. Each scale ranges from 0 to 100, with high scores indicating high levels of burnout.2
