The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 97~104
Purpose: This study was to investigate difficulties in daily activities and tingling from patients having treatment of FOLFOX chemotherapy after colon resection. Method: This study included 103 patients hospitalized for FOLFOX chemotherapy in one of the university affiliated hospital from August 1, 2008 through September 30, 2009. Data were collected using the questionnaire comprised general symptoms, tingling, difficulties in daily activities and coping behavior. Using the SPSS 14.0 program, data analytic methods include Chi-Square test, ANOVA, Scheffe's test. Results: The tingling sensation occurred in hands, feet, mouth, throat. Contacts with cold objects and the number of chemotherapy cycle worsen tingling sensation. Patients experienced difficulties in daily activities such as personal hygiene, kitchen work, eating cold food, sleeping cold, using fine motors like button up, writing, or using knife. The coping behavior included drinking warm water, sleeping warm, using gloves and socks, wearing comfortable shoes, massaging hands and getting help from supporters. Conclusion: An educational guideline for promoting coping behavior to relieve tingling sensation and difficulty in daily living in patients with FOLFOX chemotherapy is needed.

Choi, Eun-Hee ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 105~113
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine symptoms, mood and sleep disturbance in patients with hemodialysis. Method: A sample of 96 hemodialysis patients participated. Data were collected using symptom scale of hemodialysis patients, profile of mood state and the sleep scale. Statistical analytic methods included t-tes, ANOVA and Pearson correlation analyses. Results: Patients with spouse/partners experienced significantly less symptoms than those with no spouse (F=6.29, p=.003). Mood disturbance was not significantly correlated with age; but older patients experienced higher sleep disturbance (F=4.88, p=.010). Symptoms, mood and sleep disturbance are significantly related with each other. Conclusion: It is important to assess symptoms, mood and sleep disturbance in older hemodialysis patients with no spouse. It is needed to repeat extensive study and comparative study with other population in order to define clearly.

Kim, Eun-Kyoung ; Park, Yeong-Sook ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 114~122
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the health promotion, stress and the quality of life and relationship between those factors in patients with genital neoplasms. Method: Data of 151 subjects with genital neoplasms were collected from August 15 to October 12, 2009 at out-patient clinic in one general hospital in Daegu. Results: The mean score of health promotion of the subjects was 1.49 (
), stress of gynecologic cancer was 1.36 (
) and the quality of life of the subjects was 2.38 (
). There was a negative correlation between the quality of life and stress (r=-.482, p<.001), and positive correlation between the quality of life and health promotion (r=.442, p<.001) in the subjects. Conclusion: This study showed correlations between the health promotion, stress and the quality of life of patients with genital neoplasms. The quality of life of the patients with genital neoplasms was low when their stress was high. In contrast, their quality of life was high when the score of health promotion was high. Considering the research findings, it is necessary to develop a health promotion program for patients with genital neoplasms to strengthen their health promotion behaviors.

Kim, Su-Hyun ; Kang, Hyun-Sook ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 123~131
Purpose: This study was aimed at identifying the levels of parenting stress among mothers of children with cerebral palsy and factors influencing parenting stress. Method: The research design was cross-sectional survey. Data were collected from 122 mothers of hospitalized children (under 15 years of age) with cerebral palsy at the Y medical center using the questionnaires. The data were analyzed using one way analysis of variance with Scheffe test for post-hoc analysis or t-test, Pearson correlation, and stepwise multiple regression. Results: The mean score of parenting stress was 2.52 (SD=0.79; range: 1~4). The father's participation, mother's parenting hours, self-esteem and social support were significant predictors of parenting stress, significantly accounting for the 33.3% variance (F=16.118, p<.001). Conclusion: It is essential for health professionals to consider the aforementioned four factors when developing interventions to reduce parenting stress for mothers of children with cerebral palsy.
Analysis of Family Function and Mental Health State for Low-income Middle-aged Women
Ban, Keum-Ok ; Park, Jee-Won ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 132~139
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the types of family function and mental health in low-income middle aged women using the circumplex model. Method: A descriptive research design was used. A sample of 116 low income middle aged women participated in the study. The Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale III was used to measure the types of family function. Mental health was measured by the SCL. Results: The types of family function identified were balance family (59.4%), extreme family (25.9%), and mid-range family (14.7%). Significant differences were found in mental health by the family cohesion (F=3.44, p=.019) and family adaptability (F=3.31, p=.023). The mental health status of extreme family was better than mid-range family and balanced family, but such result was not statistically significant (F=0.25, p=.783). Conclusion: The Circumplex model's main hypothesis was not empirically supported that extreme family has more problematic than mid-range family and balance family. These findings emphasize the need for the development of a family system model for Korean family.
Factors Influencing Self Care Performance in Patients with Parkinson's Disease
Kim, Yu-Ri ; Min, Hye-Sook ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 140~150
Purpose: This study aims to find the factors that affect the degree of self-care performance in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. Method: This study used a descriptive correlational design. The data were collected using a sample of 80 PD patients, from the university affiliated Parkinson Center in Busan. Pearson's correlations and multiple regression analyses were conducted using the SPSS 18.0. Results: The mean score of the self-care performance was 3.61 (
). The highest score observed of self-care performance subscale was medication subscale (
) and the lowest score was observed in the exercise subscale (
). The self-care performance had significant correlations with depression (r=-.32, p<.01), self-care knowledge (r=.28, p<.05), function of motion (r=.25, p<.05), ability of daily activity (r=.22, p<.05), self-efficacy (r=.24, p<.05), and support from medical staff (r=.24, p<.05). The significant predictors of self-care performance included depression (
), status of employment (
), self-care knowledge (
), support from medical staff (
), and educational level (
), accounting for 34% of the variance in the self-care performance. Conclusion: Depression, self-care knowledge, medical support are significant predictors which affect the self-care performance with PD patients.

Park, Hyo-Mi ; Lee, Hea-Shoon ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 151~160
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of empowerment education program on self-efficacy, self-care agency, self-care activities and physiologic parameters among hemodialysis patients. Method: Nonequivalent control group pretest-posttest design was used. There were 36 subjects in the experimental group and 35 subjects in the control group. The empowerment education program was administered for 4 weeks (1 time per week). Data were collected pre-treatment and post treatment. The
-test or Fisher's exact test, ANCOVA, t-test and paired t-test were performed to determine the group differences, using SPSS 14.0 version. Results: Self-efficacy, self-care agency, self-care activities and weight variation significantly improved after the empowerment education program in hemodialysis patients. Conclusion: The empowerment education program for hemodialysis patients was effective to improve the degree of self-efficacy, self-care activities and self-care agency and to decrease interdialytic weight variation.
