Abstract [en]

Over the last decade, the technique of using ambulatory salivary sampling has becme increasingly popular in field research and clinical studies. The non-invasive method is easy to administer and analyze and allows implementation in large scale study designs. However, this large interest in the use of salivary cortisol measurement is paralleled with frustrations on opposing results. This presentation is based on a critical evaluation of the existing literature on salivary cortisol, aiming to evaluate the utility of various measures of salivary cortisol as a biomarker in relation to psychosocial work stressors. Various measures of salivary cortisol were studied in relation to psychosocial work stressors. Twenty-seven papers including psychosocial work stress in terms of the Job-Demand-Control-Support model or the Effort-Reward Imbalance model were reviewed. The presentation focuses on how salivary cortisol relates to work stressors and discusses how these results may vary depending on measurement and data analysis.
