Abstract: Emergency departments (ED) play a central role in the health care system to the extent that they are an important safety net to meet the immediate health needs of people with no usual source of care or cannot have immediate access to primary health care. However, issues on emergencies that differ either in urban or in rural areas and there is a very large gap between the developed and developing countries. Despite this difference, the issues on rural emergencies remain the similar in most countries. For example, Canada, the United States (the U.S.), and Australia are major global leaders in the areas of research are faced with the same rural issues. In sub-Saharan Africa, the rural health professionals must also deal with almost no access to diagnostic and specialized services. Also, great distances between rural centers and specialized centres. Furthermore, it should be noted that all the above latter mentioned factors have a significant impact on the quality of work life of emergency doctors. In fact overwork and irregular hours result in enormous stress, leading to burnout and psychological distress, which situation negatively impact doctors quality life at work. Moreover, human resource management openly turned to work the quality of life can take into consideration all the issues encountered by doctors at work.
