[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the uncertainty and physical activity level in patients who receive permanent pacemaker implantation. 
Methods: Two questionnaires including the Uncertainty of Illness Scale and Seven-day Physical Activity Recall were used for data collection. A total of 71 subjects who met the selection criteria were recruited. The SPSS 16.0 statistic software was used for data analysis. Results: The findings of this study were following: the higher the uncertainty of illness is, the lower absolutely total amount of physical activity per week (r =- .29, p= .015), absolutely amount of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week (r = - .35, p = .003), relatively total amount of physical activity per week (r = - .31, p = .008), and relatively amount of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week (r = - .35, p = .003) perform. Both education level and uncertain of illness were significant predictors in moderate to vigorous physical activity per week and explained 22% and 23% of variance in absolutely amount and relatively amount of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week, respectively.
Conclusion:  The results of this study support the relationship between uncertainty of illness and physical activity level and may serve as a reference in enhancing the quality of care for patients with permanent pacemaker in the future.
