ABSTRACT

Objective : The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors affecting the self care activities of strokepatients. Methods : To confirm the measurement model consisting of the sensory, motor, and visual perception of 160 strokepatients; the upper function; and the self care activity variables, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) wasperformed. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS 18.0 for descriptive statistics, and correlation analysis,Amos 16.0, for SEM. Results : The analysis results among the variables that affect the self care activities showed a significantcorrelation, and the results of the SEM showed the significant fitness of the model. Significant factors affecting theupper extremity function as a mediating variable were motor skills (grip and pinch, β=0.964). In addition, thesignificant factors affecting self care activities as a final endogenous variable were sensory (β=-0.590) andvisual perception (β=-1.228). The factors affecting the self care activities throughout the upper extremityfunction directly or indirectly were the motor, sensory, and visual perception. Conclusion : Additional studies on the social and psychological factors affecting the self care activities of strokepatients will be necessary.
