    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between regular exercise and self-rated health (SRH) in the late middle-aged and older Koran population. In this study, the 1st to 6th Korea Longitudinal Study of Aging (KLoSA) was used to analyze 3,871 participants excluding missing values, multi-variate logistic regression analysis and the generalized estimating equation (GEE) model were used to identify the association between regular physical exercise and SRH. Among individuals with less than a year or between 1-2 years of regular physical exercise, negative health reports were 1.465 or 1.29 times higher, respectively, than reports from those who had been exercising for more than five years, and these differences existed even after simultaneously correcting for weekly exercise times and durations of physical activity. Furthermore, among males and females who had less than a year of regular exercise, negative health self-reports were 1.693 and 1.287 times higher, respectively, than reports from males and females who had been exercising for more than five years. In this study, the research results revealed that while regular physical exercise affected SRH, weekly exercise hours did not exert any influence on the same. Lower regularity and continuity of exercise correlated with greater risk of negative SRH, and this association was more prevalent in men than in women. To increase the utilization of existing and planned sports facilities, it is necessary to plan and actively promote various sports programs for residents.

    Abstract PDF
    This study was conducted to identify the factors influencing the treatment satisfaction and oral health-related quality of life among dental implant patients. A survey, using a self-administered questionnaire based on the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14), was conducted to gather data from adult patients aged 20 years or older who underwent dental implant treatment at various dental hospitals and clinics in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do. The results from analyzing 146 questionnaires collected are as follows. Oral health-related quality of life among participants (p<0.05) was found to be increasing with age in terms of general characteristics. Additionally, married individuals demonstrated higher levels of oral health-related quality of life compared to unmarried individuals (p<0.05). Also, a positive correlation was observed between the number of implants and both treatment satisfaction and OHIP-14 scores. Furthermore, participants who received regular checkups reported higher OHIP-14 scores compared to their counterparts. Moreover, participants who pay more attention to pain, complications, and side effects from the procedure expressed lower satisfaction with implant treatment compared to those who put more weight on cost and daily activities (p<0.01). In fact, the study revealed that satisfaction with implant treatment significantly impacted oral health-related quality of life, in the order of cost satisfaction (p<0.001), aesthetic satisfaction (p<0.001), and functional satisfaction (p<0.05). These findings underscore the importance of enhancing patient satisfaction with treatment to improve the quality of life related to oral health. Consequently, the study emphasizes the necessity of providing accurate education and improving awareness to uphold and enhance patient satisfaction with their dental treatments.
  • The Effect of Local Community Attachment on the Support for the Development of Wellness Tourism for the Residents of Yeosu Island*

    Abstract PDF
    In encouraging the development and promotion of local tourism, the local residents’ extent of support for the relevant projects can have a significant effect. Thus, this study examines how the extent of community attachment affects Yeosu Island residents’ attitudes and support for the development of wellness tourism, which has recently become a new tourism trend. Towards this end, a survey was conducted with 237 residents of Yeosu Island in October 2021, and the hypothesis was tested by structural equation modeling using AMOS 29. Results of the study are as follows. Community attachment has a significant correlation with the perceived benefits and perceived costs of wellness tourism development, and the perceived benefits of tourism development have a significant correlation with the extent of support for wellness tourism development. These results suggest that it is desirable to place more emphasis on the benefits of tourism development to encourage positive attitudes toward and awareness of a project.
