English Abstract

Background: Staff performance reflects an essential part of the organization pillars, and the performance of the health sector depends on employee motivation.

Objectives: The main objective of the study was to detect the relationship between motivation (extrinsic and intrinsic motivation) and the performance of physicians and dentists in health centers in two governorates in southern Jordan (Al-Karak and Al-Tafila).

Another objective is to identify performance and motivation relations with the social-demographic factors.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted during the period from January to June 2020 at health centers in Al-Karak and Al-Tafila.

All of the physician and dentists working at these two governorates were included.

A pilot study was carried out prior to conducting the main study.

A selfadministered structured validated questionnaire was used for data collection, and this questionnaire used a program based on a five-point Likert scale.

As descriptive as well as inferential statistics were carried out, like t-test, correlation, and analysis of variance (ANOVA).

By using SPSS version 19, (α<0.05) was considered as the significance level.

Results: The rate of response was 96%.

The whole motivation showed a moderate level (mean=3.21±0.64), the intrinsic motivation showed a moderate level (mean= 3.26±0.730), and the extrinsic motivation showed a moderate level (mean=3.14±0.80).

The performance level also showed a moderate level (mean=3.48±.0.68).

No statistical significance was detected regarding the socio-demographic factors, neither to the performance nor with motivation, except actual working hours of the participants (p<0.03).

There was a statistically significant positive correlation between overall motivation and performance (r=0.45, p<0.001), between intrinsic motivation and performance (r=0.446, p<0.001), as well as, between extrinsic motivation and performance (r=0.310, p <0.001).

Conclusion: Physician's and dentist's performance and motivation factors showed a moderate level.

Both types of motivation showed a positive correlation with the performance of the participants, however, there was no significant relation of socio-demographic variables with performance or motivation.
