Background and Objectives: Nowadays, the rate of cerebral stroke is increasing in Iran. Therefore, the identification of factors affecting the quality of life in patients with stroke helps researchers to have a more comprehensive understanding of its treatment. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between religious orientation and quality of life in patients with stroke in Zanjan.
Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted on 120 patients with stroke who were selected using convenient sampling. The data were collected through Allport religious orientation and World Health Organization Quality of Life questionnaires. Data analysis was performed using Pearson correlation and multiple regression.
Results: According to the results of this study, extrinsic religious orientation correlated with total quality of life (r=0.555, P=0.01), as well as physical health (r=0.400, P=0.01), psychological (r=0.737, P=0.001), and environmental (r=0.463, P=0.01) domains. Moreover, the results revealed that intrinsic religious orientation correlated with total quality of life (r=-0.443, P=0.01), as well as physical health (r=-0.219, P=0.05), psychological (r=-0.522, P=0.01), social relationships (r=-0.252, P=0.047), and environmental (r=-0.631, p=0.045) domains. In addition, the results of the regression analysis indicated that extrinsic religious orientation showed no significant prediction in terms of social relationships; however, the predictions were significant regarding other domains. Furthermore, a significant association was observed between total quality of life, psychological and environmental domains with an intrinsic religious orientation.
Conclusion: Religious orientation can have an effect on the improvement of quality of life in patients with cerebral stroke.
