[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: 
This study aimed to describe whether levels of depression by socio-demographic characteristics, physical symptoms, self-rated health, and family support in patients with disorders of musculoskeletal or nervous system in Korea.
Methods:  
This study was designed as cross-sectional descriptive survey. One hundred thirty nine participants were recruited from the orthopedic and neurology outpatient clinics or in-patients departments of three hospitals in Korea. Study participants completed socio-demographic characteristics, symptom distress scale developed by McCorkle and Young (1978), self-rated health, family APGAR, and Korean version of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Scale (CES-D).
Results: 
On average, the participants reported an overall depression score of 19.2 (range: 0-54), physical symptoms of 23.0 (range: 10-45), self-rated health of 7.7 (range: 4-12), and family support of 5.8 (range: 0-10). About 60 % (83 individuals) of the participants had depression. Patients who are older, unemployed, in admission, or with lower monthly household income had great depression. Patients who had higher physical symptoms score, lower self-rated health, or lower family support were vulnerable to depression.
Conclusion: Study findings will be useful to establish priorities in planning nursing interventions in order to diminish depression in patients with disorders of musculoskeletal or nervous system. Nursing interventions can be provided to patients with disorders of musculoskeletal or nervous system who are older, unemployed, with lower monthly household income, higher physical symptoms score, lower self-rated health, or lower family support.
