Purpose: The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify relationships among daily living ability, symptom management, self care agency, and self efficacy of the patient with chronic mental illness in Korean. Background: The symptom management, self care agency, and self efficacy among the patients with chronic mental illness has been considered as strategy to increasing factors on daily living ability and health promotion. However little research has been done on the relationship among symptom management, self care agency, self efficacy and daily living ability of the patient with chronic mental illness in Korean. Methods: Data were collected over a 6 month period on 256 chronically mentally ill adult out-patients at eight community mental health centers in Seoul, Korea. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations, stepwise multiple regression. Results: Results indicated significant positive correlation (P<.05) among symptom management, self care agency, self efficacy, and daily living ability. Stepwise multiple regression revealed that most powerful predictor of daily living ability was symptom management (19%). The combination of symptom management, self care agency, and self efficacy accounted for 42% of the variance in daily living ability. Data from this study suggest that symptom management, self care agency, and self efficacy are significant influencing factors on daily living ability of the patients with chronic mental illness in Korean. Implications: These results have important implications for the development and testing of a nursing intervention program for the patients with chronic mental illness. In developing a nursing intervention program, the major influencing variables described above need to be carefully evaluated. As the proportion of chronic mental illness population continues to increase, it is essential to develop nursing interventions that are cost effective and maximize quality of life.
