The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify relationship between symptoms of stress and quality of life 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 chronic illness has been considered as one variable to influencing factors on health care problem and quality of life. However little research has been done on the relationship between symptoms of stress and quality of life among chronic illness in Korean. Data were collected over 8 month period on 1762 chronic ill adult out-patients at a university hospital in Seoul, Korea. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations. Results indicated significant positive correlation among perceived social support, perceived health status, ways of coping, and quality of life. There were significant negative correlation among perceived stress, symptoms of stress, and quality of life. Data form this study suggest that perceived social support, perceived health status, ways of coping, perceived stress, and symptoms of stress are significant influencing factors on quality of life of chronic illness in Korean. 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.
