Background : Symptoms of stress and chronic fatigue are distressing symptoms in the patients with chronic fatigue. The fatigue-regulation behavior among the patients with chronic fatigue has been considered as one strategy to decreasing factors on health problem and quality of life. However little research has been done on the relationship between symptoms of stress and fatigue-regulation behavior among the patient with chronic fatigue in Korean. Purpose : The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify relationship between symptoms of stress and fatigue-regulation behavior of the patient with chronic fatigue in Korean. Design : A descriptive design was utilized to examine influencing factors on symptoms of stress and fatigue-regulation behavior of the patient with chronic fatigue in Korean. 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 Social Support Scale, Perceived Fatigue Scale, Self-efficacy Scale, Symptoms of Stress, Fatigue-Regulatory Behavior Scale. Methods : Data were analyzed using Descriptive statistics, Pearsons correlations, and Stepwise multiple regression. Results : Results indicated significant positive correlation (P<.05) among perceived social support, perceived fatigue, self-efficacy, symptoms of stress, and fatigue-regulatory behavior. Stepwise multiple regression revealed that most powerful predictor of fatigue-regulation behavior was symptoms of stress (18%). The combination of self-efficacy, perceived social support, perceived fatigue, and symptoms of stress accounted for 42% of the variance in fatigue-regulation behavior. Conclusion : Data from this study suggest that self-efficacy, perceived social support, perceived fatigue, and symptoms of stress are significant influencing factors on fatigue-regulation behavior of the patients with chronic fatigue in Korean. Implications : These results have important implications for the development and testing of fatigue-regulation program for the patients with chronic fatigue. In developing fatigue-regulation t 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.
