Religiosity and Social Support and their Relationship with the Quality of Life and Satisfaction among Kuwaiti Men with Cancer.

Auther : Dr. Maha M. AL-Sejari - Dr. Anwar F. AL-Khurainej - Ebtesam R. AL-Qaoud

     Several studies show that patients with cancer suffer from stress, fear of death, and depression which in turn negatively affect the patient's quality of life. Enhancing the patients' religiosity  positively influences their perspective of life by feeling optimistic, relieved and secure. The current study aims to examine the relationship between religiosity and social support and the quality of life among patients with cancer in Kuwaiti society.  A questionnaire was used in this study. It consisted of demographic and social variables. Quality Of Life Scale (WHOQOL-Bref), Satisfaction With Life Scale, and Religiosity Scale were distributed on 124 cancer patients from Maky Joma Cancer Center. The results showed that there was a significant positive relationship between marital status and quality of life, and between religiosity and life satisfaction and quality of life among Kuwaiti men with cancer. Moreover, there was a significant negative relationship between stage of disease and men's life satisfaction and quality of life.
