Objectives & Design: The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify influencing factors on symptoms of stress of chronic illness in Korean. The increasing efficiency of health care system has saved many lives, resulting in an ever-increasing number of chronic health problems. Symptoms of stress among the chronic patient has been considered as a major problem during illness experiences. However little research has been done on symptoms of stress 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. The disease of subject included hypertension and cardiac disease, peptic ulcer, COPD and asthma, rheumatic arthritis, DM, and chronic kidney disease. Variables: study variables included the perceived stress, ways of coping, emotional status, symptoms of stress, quality of life, health promoting behavior, self-efficacy, perceived health status, self-esteem. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations, and stepwise multiple regression. Findings: Results indicated significant positive correlation among perceived stress, ways of coping, emotional status, and symptoms of stress. There were significant negative correlation among quality of life, health promoting behavior, self-efficacy, perceived health status, self-esteem, and symptoms of stress. Stepwise multiple regression revealed that the most powerful predictor of symptoms of stress was perceived stress. The combination of quality of life, ways of coping, emotional status, perceived health status, and health promoting behavior accounted for 48% of the variance in symptoms of stress. Conclusions: Data from this study suggest that perceived stress, quality of life, ways of coping, emotional status, perceived health status, and health promoting behavior 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.
