Abstract

This study was done to identify differences in depression, anxiety, and stress in Korea elders (n=55) and New Zealand elders (n=55). Methods: This study was conducted from January 24th, 2013 to February 10th, 2013. We individually matched Korea elders to New Zealand elders based on age and sex, and assessed a questionnaire regarding depression, anxiety, and stress. Results: The average depress score for the Korea elders (13.67/42) was significantly different to the average for the New Zealand elders (4.70/42). The average anxiety score for the Korea elders (11.42/42) was significantly different to the average score for the New Zealand elders (4.92/42). The average stress score for the Korea elders (13.54/42) was significantly different to the average score for the New Zealand elders (5.40/42). The depression score showed a significant relationship with anxiety and stress. There was significantly positive correlation between anxiety and stress. The study suggests that should be considered in developing nursing intervention to manage depress, anxiety, and stress of the Korea elderly people.
