The Effect of Stress and Sense of Coherence on Health Behavior Compliance in Outpatients with Stroke

뇌졸중 환자의 스트레스와 통합성이 건강행위 이행에 미치는 영향


The purpose of this study was to identify the effect of stress and sense of coherence on health behavior compliance in patients with stroke. The subjects were 124 outpatients with stroke at a general hospital in Ulsan from May to July, 2019. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, one-way ANOVA, Scheffe test, Pearson's correlation coefficient and hierarchical multiple regression analysis by using SPSS 25.0. In the results, the health behavior compliance showed a significantly positive correlation with sense of coherence(r=.71, p<.001) and a negative correlation with stress(r=-.53, p<.001). The predictors of model 1 were gender(t=4.07, p<.001), education level(t=4.18, p<.001), and monthly income(t=-2.34, p=.021) and the statistical power was 39.6%. The predictors of model 2 were gender(t=4.65, p<.001), education level(t=43.24, p<.001), and sense of coherence(t=4.33, p<.001) and the statistical power was 60.4%. Thus, a nursing intervention program which is focused on a sense of coherence could promote health behavior compliance in patients with stroke.
