Abstract PDF
This study examined the relationship between perceived disaster damage, posttraumatic stress, and subjective health status after disasters and the moderating effect of perceived psychological support among disaster victims.
Data from 1,821 participants in the fourth ‘Follow-up Survey on Change of Disaster Victims’ conducted by the National Disaster Management Research Institute in 2019 were analyzed.
The results showed that the perceived degree of disaster damage significantly impacted subjective health status after disasters; this effect was fully mediated by posttraumatic stress. Furthermore, perceptions of psychological support were found to moderate the mediation effect of posttraumatic stress.
Based on these findings, a discussion was suggested regarding future improvements in disaster-supporting policies.

Abstract PDF

The occurrence of nurse burnout, which could affect the quality of nursing, largely depends on the characteristics of a hospital department. An operating room (OR) environment comes with a high possibility of nurses committing errors, and OR nurses respect the value of patient safety and perform their safety management duties as needed. Although patient safety culture in an OR might affect OR nurse burnout, there is insufficient evidence to show such an association.


This cross-sectional study was conducted in a hospital in Seoul, South Korea in 2019. One-hundred and twenty-two OR nurses completed the Safety Attitude Questionnaire Korean version 2 and Maslach Burnout Inventory that measured perceived levels of patient safety culture and burnout, respectively.


Correlation analyses found that lower burnout was significantly associated with better patient safety culture. Through a multiple regression, the predictors of emotional exhaustion in patient safety culture identified were job satisfaction (β=−.524, p=.000) and working conditions (β=−.282, p=.015). Working conditions predicted depersonalization (β=−.323, p=.009), while job satisfaction predicted lack of personal accomplishment (β=−.250, p=.004). Meanwhile, years in the unit (β=−.397, p=.001) predicted lack of personal accomplishment.


These results suggest an important role for two dimensions of patient safety culture in mitigating burnout among OR nurses. It would be effective to improve working conditions in ORs by reducing the nurse-patient ratio, and to enhance job satisfaction among OR nurses by securing resources introduced by the conservation of resources theory.

Abstract PDF

The purpose of this study was to identify the relation of parenting stress, anger and somatization symptom in mothers. Data were collected from 104 mothers of infants 12 months to 7 years old and analyzed by the statistical package SPSS WIN 20.0. The mean score for parenting stress was 78.26, that of anger was 74.00 and that of somatization symptom was 8.09. The score for parent domain was the highest in parenting stress and that of anger-control was the highest in anger expression. And the score of the trait anger was higher than that of the state anger. The parent domain was significant correlated with state anger (r=.490, p<.001) and trait anger (r=.415, p<.001), parent-children domain was significant correlated with state anger (r=.418, p<.001), somatization symptom was significant correlated with parent domain (r=.454, p<.001) and state anger (r=.488, p<.001). Anger-in (t=4.864, p<.001) and parent domain in parenting stress (t=2.380, p=.019) were significant predictors explaining 35.7% in somatization symptom.
