Objectives & Design: The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify influencing factors on quality of life of chronic illness in Korean focused on health promotion. The increasing efficiency of health care system has saved many lives, resulting in an ever-increasing number of chronic health problems. Health promotion among chronic illness has been proposed as one strategy to maintain health care cost and enhance quality of life. However little research has been done on health promotion and quality of life among chronic illness in Korean. Population, Sample, Setting: Data were collected over 8 month period (December 1999-July 2000) on 1762 chronic ill adult out-patients at a university hospital in Seoul, Korea. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations, and stepwise multiple regression. Variables: Study variables were the health promoting behavior, perceived benefit to health promoting behavior, self-efficacy, social support, self-esteem, health perception, perceived disability, risk of recurrence, and quality of life. Findings: Results indicated significant positive correlation among health promoting behavior, perceived benefit to health promoting behavior, self-efficacy, social support, self-esteem, health perception, and quality of life. There were significant negative correlation among perceived disability, risk of recurrence, and quality of life. Stepwise multiple regression revealed that the most powerful predictor of quality of life was health promoting behavior. The combination of health promoting behavior, perceived benefit to health promoting behavior, social support, self-esteem, health perception, perceived disability, and risk of recurrence accounted for 57% of variance in quality of life. Conclusions: Data form this study suggest that health promoting behavior, perceived benefit to health promoting behavior, social support, self-esteem, health perception, perceived disability, and risk of recurrence are significant influencing factors on symptoms of stress of chronic illness in Korean. Implications: These results have important implications for the development and testing of symptom management program for chronic illness. In developing symptom management program, the major influencing variables described above need to be carefully evaluated. As the proportion of chronic illness population continues to increase it is essential to develop nursing interventions that are cost effective and maximize quality of life.
