Investigation of Influential Factors of Health-Related Quality of Life in Patients With Bronchial Asthma
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors influencing health-related quality of life of asthma patients. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted to gather data on the influencing factors for health-related quality of life. The sample was composed of 85 outpatients with bronchial asthma. All patients completed self assessment of medication adherence, Asthma General Knowledge Questionnaire for Adults, and Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire. Data were analyzed using Student's t-test, Pearson's product-moment correlation, amd multiple regression. Results: The results showed that age, gender, and marital status were related to health-related quality of life. Religious affiliation, age, numbers of hospital admission, and asthma knowledge were the predictors of health-related quality of life. The variables entered in the model accounted for 25% of the total variance (adjusted R square) in health-related quality of life. Conclusions: The variables entered at most only 25% of the variance was explained. Further investigation might identify other influential factors.
