PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to investigate the research methods, types and effects of community health center exercise programs for the elderly.
METHODS
We established the PICOTS-SD (Participants, Interventions, Comparisons, Outcomes, Timing of outcome measurement, Setting, Study Design), reviewed 583 studies from electronic database of DBpia, KoreaMed, KISS, RISS, NDSL and Pubmed, and finally selected 20 studies based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Methodological quality was assessed with the Risk-of-Bias Assessment tool for non-randomized studies.
RESULTS
With regard to research methods, the majority of studies on community health center exercise programs for the elderly were performed after 2010 and using non-equivalent control group pretest-posttest research design. As for the types and effects of exercise programs, the exercise period ranged from 6 to 28 weeks, and the most common exercise frequency was three times a week for 60 minutes. In addition, mixed-type and group exercise programs were performed most commonly.
CONCLUSION
The results of this study provide a basis for the development of exercise programs to improve elders' health.

PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to estimate the effects of lifestyle factors on metabolic syndrome (MS) among Korean adults (age> or =20).
METHODS
A total of 7,798 subjects (weighted subjects=37,215,961) were recruited from the 2009 Fourth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES IV-3). Data were analyzed by t-test, chi2-test, and logistic regression in consideration of strata, cluster and weight as national data using the SAS 9.1 program.
RESULTS
The prevalence of MS by definition of AHA/NHLBI and waist circumference cutoff points for Koreans was 22.4%. The mean clinical MS score for MS patients was 3.4, but the mean score for the non-MS group was 1.2 out of 5.0. Among the lifestyle factors, smoking (OR=1.024), stress (0.546< or =OR< or =0.587) and drinking (OR=1.005) had significant influence on the MS risk and MS scores, but exercise did not.
CONCLUSION
The results of this study indicate that further research is necessary on the effect of lifestyle factors on MS risk and nurses should focus on effective programs about smoking, stress and drinking for the prevention and reduction of MS risk.

AbstractAbstract PDF
OBJECTIVES
The purpose of this study was to analyze health service utilization, and its related factors in low income families who earned half of the average Korean household income.
METHODS
This was a cross-sectional descriptive survey study in which a nationwide randomization sampling technique was used. The data were collected from July 12 to August 7, 1999, and the total sample size was 5,819 individuals, belonging to 1,753 households.
RESULTS
1) In the utilization of health services for the last 3months, the pharmacy was the type of service that was the most utilized (32.0%), and the health center was the one that was the least utilized (10.3%). About 29 % (29.2%) of the respondents could not utilize the health service at all, and 19.8% of the respondents terminated their medical treatments half way to completion because of financial difficulty (89.4%). 2) Analysis of the data using logistic regression showed that living with spouse, level of education, occupation, and income had statistically significant effects on health service utilization.
CONCLUSION
The parameters of health care policies are equity and efficacy for health status, and the health service utilization by low income families. The conclusive resolution for these is the improvement of public health centers for an increased utilization rate of their services.

AbstractAbstract PDF
In order to analyze the health problems of school-aged children, daily health records from a convenient sample of two primary schools were analyzed. Diseases were classified into 21 categories according to the KCD (Korea Standard Classification of Diseases). The mean number of visits to health care rooms during school per student was 1.98 during 212 school days from Mar. 2000 to Feb. in 2001 and the mean number of daily visits was 11.66. Male students and 3rd graders visited health care rooms more frequently than female students and other graders. The total spell base incidence rate was 1976.8 per 1,000 students in a year; the incidence rate from injuries was 960.0; 542.4 were for digestive diseases; and 415.2, for respiratory diseases. 97% of all diseases were injuries, digestive diseases and respiratory diseases. The most frequent diseases for male students resulted from trauma, and those for female students, from digestive and respiratory symptoms. The services that nursing teachers implemented were wound treatment (48.8%), medication (44.6%), and so on. Therefore, the findings of this research can serve as the basis for developing school health service program and health education program.

The purpose of this study was to analyze the relation between health behavior and public health center utilization among lower income families who earned half of the average Korean family income. The cross-sectional descriptive survey research we conducted was a nationwide randomization sampling among lower income families. The data was collected from July 12 to August 7, 1999 and the total sample was 5,819 household members (1,735 households). There were three major findings according to these studies. 1. In health behaviors, 26.5% of respondents had a health examination. Among them, 41.5% were in a poor condition of health. In health promotion behaviors, only 37.3% of respondents were doing activities for health maintenance or promotion. 2. In the results of the public health center utilization for the past year, 57.4% of respondents visited one or more times. In addition, 46.2% of respondents wanted to use a visiting nursing service. 3. In the results of multiple logistic regression, we found that less education, larger family size, and medicaid affects more utilization of public health center.
