    Croatian abstract

    RELIGIOZNOST I KVALITETA ŽIVOTA KOD OBOLJELIH OD RAKA DOJKE ----- Naš je cilj bio ispitati odnose između kvalitete života i religioznosti u bolesnica s karcinomom dojke. U istraživanju je konsekutivno tijekom šest mjeseci uključeno 115 bolesnica odjela za radioterapiju. Korištene mjere su Upitnik snage religijskog vjerovanja Santa Clara, Indeks kvalitete života Svjetske zdravstvene organizacije verzija pet i Upitnik kvalitete života međunarodne istraživačke grupe za karcinom dojke. Učesnice su odgovorile i na tri pitanja vezana uz religijsko sučeljavanje s karcinomom. Umjerena religioznost povezana je s lošijom percepcijom tjelesnog zdravlja. Tvrdnja »bolest je smanjila moju vjeru« povezana je s lošijim dimenzijama kvalitete života: manje dobrobiti, više boli, lošijim tjelesnim zdravljem, više uloženog napora u sučeljavanju s bolesti, više umora i manje općeg zadovoljstva. Tvrdnja »vjera mi pomaže u bolesti« povezana je s višom društvenom podrškom.

    English abstract

    Our aim was to assess relations between the quality of life and religiosity in breast cancer patients. The participants were 115 consecutively admitted female in-patients with breast cancer in the radiotherapy unit in the course of six months. The measures used were Santa Clara Strength of Religious Faith Questionnaire (SCSORF),World Health Organisation Well-Being Index Five (WHO-WBI 5) and International Breast Cancer Study Group Quality of Life (IBCSG-QL) Questionnaire. The participants responded on three statements relating to religious coping with cancer. Moderate religiosity was associated with perception of worse physical health. The statement »the illness decreased my faith« was associated with worse quality of life (QOL) domains: less well-being, more pain, poor physical health, more effort to cope, worse fatigue and less general satisfaction. The statement »the faith helps me in illness« was associated with higher social support.
