Abstract
People with Parkinson's disease (PD) reported to experience uncertainty because of gradually progressive disease characteristics with no cure, and variably manifesting and unpredictable symptoms. This study was designed to identify illness-related variables influencing uncertainty in PD patients and to analyze direct and indirect paths between these variables. Data were collected from 206 participants using a structured questionnaire. Path analysis revealed the direct and/or indirect effects of economic status, disease severity, social support, and resilience on uncertainty in people with PD. Disease severity, social support, and resilience were shown to have significant direct effects on uncertainty. Economic status and disease severity had indirect effects on uncertainty, which were mediated by social support. Disease severity and social support also had indirect effects on uncertainty, which were mediated by resilience. Therefore, the efforts of health care professionals should be directed not only toward managing PD symptoms, but also toward facilitating social support and resilience.
