英文摘要:

This study aims to observe longitudinal change of quality of life (QOL) and psychological wellbeing in a community sample affected by an earthquake and to examine the relationship between QOL and disaster exposure, post-disaster support and other related variables. The subjects, from two villages at different distances from the epicenter, were assessed using the brief version of the World Health Organization Quality of Life Assessment (WHOQOL-BREF) and three subscales of a symptoms checklist at 3 months (n=335) and 9 months (n=253) after the earthquake, respectively. Exposure to the earthquake was associated with multidimensional impairment in QOL, including physical, psychological and environmental domains at 3 months, and psychological and environmental domains at 9 months. The victims also suffered significantly more psychological distress in terms of depression, somatization and anxiety. At both assessment points the group that experienced lower initial exposure but then received less post-disaster help reported poorer QOL and psychological well-being. The two victim groups also differed significantly in changing trend along time. The group that received more support showed a general improvement in post-disaster well-being from 3 months to 9 months. The results confirm that post-disaster variables could be as important to post-disaster psychosocial outcomes as variables of predisaster vulnerability and disaster per se. A comprehensive and prospective assessment of disaster effects is imperative for the better organization of disaster relief programs and psychosocial interventions.
