3. Résumé


«[T]his study examined a multidimensional mediating model of PSC, FSSB and WFC-time, FWC-time, WFC-strain and FWC-strain. More particularly, this research tested the impact of PSC on WFC-time, FWC-time, WFC-strain and FWC-strain directly and indirectly via FSSB. Given the cross-sectional design of our study, we are unable to make causal inferences, so that our results should be interpreted with caution. We observed that PSC is related to WFC-time, FWC-time, WFC-strain and FWC-strain. In addition, the results demonstrate that PSC is associated with FSSB and has an indirect negative effect on WFC-time, FWC-time, WFC-strain and FWC-strain via FSSB. More precisely, when the level of PSC is high, it improves the level FSSB which, in turn, is related to WFC-time, FWC-time, WFC-strain and FWC-strain. This study supports the fact that there is an impact of PSC among Canadian workers in the health sector.» (p. 485)
