Abstract:Introduction: Caregivers have a higher risk to develop burnout. Burnout is often the result of a prolonged exposure to stress, a high workload and a low work satisfaction. Work engagement is a positive, fulfilling work attitude that is characterized by vigor, dedication and absorption. Consequences of work engagement at work are a positive work attitude, good individual health and work satisfaction. According to the self-determination theory the fulfilling of autonomy, competence and relatedness leads to optimal functioning and well-being at work. The research question is whether there is a connection between burnout, work engagement and the fulfilling of the three psychological needs autonomy, competence and relatedness according to the self-determination theory. Based on literature three hypothesis were formulated. Method: 128 caregivers filled in the online questionnaire. Burnout was measured by the UBOS, work engagement by the UWES and the three psychological needs by de w-BNS. Results: The results showed a negative relationship between burnout and work engagement, a negative relationship between fulfilling of the three basic needs autonomy, competence and relatedness and burnout and a relationship between work engagement and fulfilling of the three basic needs autonomy, competence and relatedness Discussion: The results confirm the results of earlier research and showed that stimulation of work engagement and fulfilling of the basic needs can contribute to reducing burnout complaints. This can result to a future workplace with more engagement and less burn-out
