This study was attempted to identify factors related to the health habit practice in stroke patients of some area. Data was surveyed using interview and questionnaires by 142 stroke patients who visited a general hospital which was located in Seoul from May 3 to June 3, 2010. The results were as follows ; First, there was significantly negative correlation between health information and unpredictability(r=-0.264, p<0.01), and positive correlation between uncertainty and stress(r=0.582, p<0.01). Secondly, as a result of multiple regression analysis,, health habit practice of stroke patients was significantly influenced by age($R^2$=0.62, p=0.000), unpredictability($R^2$=0.096, p=0.006), health information($R^2$=0.055, p=0.005), sex($R^2$=0.068, p=0.003), the usage of stroke therapy($R^2$=0.041, p=0.017). In conclusion, strategies for enhancing health information and reducing uncertainty are needed to promote health habit practice in patients with stroke.
