Background: The symptoms of stress and stress management program among the patients with chronic fatigue has been considered as major variables to influencing factors on health care problem and quality of life. However little research has been done on symptoms of stress among the patient with chronic fatigue in Korean. Purpose : The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify influencing factors on symptoms of stress of the patient with chronic fatigue in Korean. Design : A descriptive design was utilized to examine influencing factors on Symptoms of stress in patients with chronic fatigue. Population, Sample : Data were collected over 5 month period on 254 adult out-patients at a university hospital and community health care center in Seoul, Korea. Variables, Instruments : Study variables and instruments for data collection included the Perceived fatigue Scale, Perceived social support Scale, Self-efficacy Scale, Symptoms of stress Scale, Fatigue-regulating Scale. A pilot study was conducted to test the validity and reliability of all instruments with this population. Based on these results, instruments were adapted to the specific cultural needs of Korean adult. Methods : Data were analyzed using Descriptive statistics, Pearsons correlations, and Stepwise multiple regression. Results : Results indicated significant positive correlation (P<.05) among perceived fatigue, fatigue-regulation behavior, and symptoms of stress. There were significant negative correlation (P<.05) among self-efficacy, perceived social support, and symptoms of stress. Stepwise multiple regression revealed that most powerful predictor of symptoms of stress was perceived fatigue (19%). The combination of self-efficacy, perceived social support, perceived fatigue, and fatigue-regulation behavior accounted for 43% of the variance in symptoms of stress. Conclusions : Data from this study suggest that self-efficacy, perceived social support, perceived fatigue, and fatigue-regulation behavior are significant influencing factors on symptoms of stress of the patients with chronic fatigue in Korean. Implications : These results have important implications for the development and testing of stress management program for the patients with chronic fatigue. In developing stress management program, the major influencing variables described above need to be carefully evaluated. As the proportion of chronic fatigue population continues to increase it is essential to develop nursing interventions that are cost effective and maximize quality of life.
