  • Post-traumatic Growth in Cancer Patients: A Correlational Study in Turkey

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study aims to evaluate the factors that influence post-traumatic growth (PTG), including religious coping and resilience. This descriptive and correlational study involved 111 cancer patients, followed up at a hematology inpatient clinic of a university hospital in Turkey. Religious coping scale, resilience scale, and PTG inventory were used for data collection. PTG was positively associated with negative religious coping and was negatively associated with age. PTG scores were higher for patients without children, who were recently diagnosed, had higher knowledge about the disease, and used negative religious coping.

  • COVID-19 and the Sikh Community in the UK: A Qualitative Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, a significant effect on individuals worldwide, and it is clear that minority communities including the Sikh community have been particularly affected by the virus. The current study assessed the impact of the pandemic in a sample of 44 British Sikhs across 11 virtual focus groups. Three main themes emerged including making meaningful connections, struggling to adjust and the organisation of gurdware (Sikh places of worship) in coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. Findings highlight that faith may promote collective action for collective healing especially during mass trauma, with specific insight into what this may entail for the Sikh community.

  • Cross-National Comparison of Religion as a Predictor of COVID-19
           Vaccination Rates

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We examined the effects of religiosity on COVID-19 vaccination rates using a cross-national comparison while controlling for socio-economic factors and culture. Our analysis, conducted on data from 90 countries representing 86% of the world population, showed that Christianity was negatively related to vaccination, while there was no relation with Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and nonbelief. The importance of religion, freedom of expression and belief, sex ratio, median age, and almost all cultural factors were not related to vaccination, whereas Human Development Index was. The influence of different religions on vaccination rates has also been described.

  • A “stick to beat you with”' Advocating for a Critical Close
           Reading of ‘Vocation’ Among Evangelical Medics in England

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Evangelical Christianity and healthcare work are two contexts in which vocation is often an important discourse. Exploring uses, understandings and implications of vocation for evangelical medics thus offers a rich opportunity to critically interrogate vocation from two important perspectives. In addition to identifying a three-tiered construction of vocation, on macro-, meso- and micro-levels, this paper suggests that to fully understand its manifestations among a sample of English evangelical medics, a critical, Weberian-style reading is valuable. This latter conclusion resonates with those drawn by scholars who extend a critical view across constructions of medical vocation more broadly, not least given concerns regarding workplace burnout.

  • Global Research Trends of Health-Related Publications on Ramadan Fasting
           from 1999 to 2021: A Bibliometric Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Ramadan fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam. The current study aims to examine, analyze, and identify trends of health-related publications on Ramadan fasting. In total, 1468 documents retrieved from Scopus were analyzed. The mean number of authors per document was 3.7, with an average of 13.3 citations per document. The UK ranked first (12.3%, n = 181) regarding the number of documents, followed by Iran (10.4%, n = 153) and then Saudi Arabia (9.8%, n = 144). The most active journal was “Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice” (4.9%, n = 72). Publications related to diabetes and fasting constituted around 29.7% (n = 436) of the literature. The research volume on Ramadan fasting has been noticeably growing. More reliable research is required to aid healthcare professionals in providing patient-specific care.

  • Providing Spiritual Care to In-Hospital Patients During COVID-19: A
           Preliminary European Fact-Finding Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Historically, there has be a close relationship between the nursing services and spiritual care provision to patients, arising due to the evolvement of many hospitals and nursing programmes from faith-based institutions and religious order nursing. With increasing secularism, these relationships are less entwined. Nonetheless, as nurses typically encounter patients at critical life events, such as receiving bad news or dying, nurses frequently understand the need and requirement for both spiritual support and religious for patients and families during these times. Yet there are uncertainties, and nurses can feel ill-equipped to deal with patients’ spiritual needs. Little education or preparation is provided to these nurses, and they often report a lack of confidence within this area. The development of this confidence and the required competencies is important, especially so with increasingly multicultural societies with diverse spiritual and religious needs. In this manuscript, we discuss initial field work carried out in preparation for the development of an Erasmus Plus educational intervention, entitled from Cure to Care Digital Education and Spiritual Assistance in Healthcare. Referring specifically to post-COVID spirituality needs, this development will support nurses to respond to patients’ spiritual needs in the hospital setting, using digital means. This preliminary study revealed that while nurses are actively supporting patients’ spiritual needs, their education and training are limited, non-standardised and heterogeneous. Additionally, most spiritual support occurs within the context of a Judeo-Christian framework that may not be suitable for diverse faith and non-faith populations. Educational preparation for nurses to provide spiritual care is therefore urgently required.

  • “Spiritual Readiness” in the U.S. Military: A Neglected
           Component of Warrior Readiness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Recent events have led to concerns about whether U.S. service members are “ready” to engage in combat operations. With most discussions now focused on military readiness, attention paid to warfighter readiness may have fallen behind. Service members typically receive extensive training in the tactical, physical, mental, social, and behavioral aspects of readiness, while the spiritual aspects are often ignored. This review examines (1) recent concerns over warfighter readiness, (2) mental health problems that are common among members of the U.S. military, (3) definitions and determinants of “spiritual readiness” (SR), (4) the impact of SR on human flourishing (HF) and warfighter readiness, (5) research on the effects of religious/spiritual involvement on HF, and (6) those responsible for building and sustaining SR in the military. An extensive body of research over the past 30 years has documented the impact of religious/spiritual (R/S) involvement on many aspects of human flourishing, thereby affecting the warfighter’s readiness to perform duties at the highest level. Military chaplains, mental health professionals, and medical providers all play important roles in building and sustaining the spiritual readiness of those in the U.S. military, thereby ensuring that these individuals perform in a way that maximizes their success during combat operations.

  • Spiritual Care within Dietetic Practice: A Systematic Literature Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Registered dietitians assess, diagnose and treat nutritional problems. Although integral to healthcare, their role in spiritual care is unknown. We conducted a systematic review of spiritual needs and spiritual care in nutrition and dietetic practice. Subject Headings and keywords were used to search Medline, CINAHL, PsycINFO and AMED for studies exploring spiritual care and nutrition or dietetic practice. From 1433 records, 13 studies were included. Medium quality evidence showed unmet spiritual needs among dietetic patients suffering from cancer, COPD, heart failure and diabetes. Unmet needs occurred in patients from a variety of ethnicities, religions and none. However, dietitians were only involved in spiritual care regarding nutrition and hydration at the end of life. Integrating spiritual screening and sign-posting within dietetic practice is prudent, but clinical trials are needed to evaluate its effectiveness.

           Health Care: VOSviewer Visualization Techniques

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study sought to conduct a knowledge mapping of articles to shed light on the application of the Quran and Hadiths in health care. The study is applied in terms of purpose and scientometrics in terms of type, which has been carried out using retrospective bibliometric analysis methods and visualization through knowledge mapping. In order to do so, the PubMed database with related keywords was thoroughly searched. Then, 302 relevant articles were reviewed in terms of the author, the year of publication, the journal, and the subject. In addition, VOSviewer software was employed to analyze and visualize keywords and maps of the articles. The findings showed that 302 articles were published between 1972 and 2021 in 190 journals, among which the Journal of Religion and Health was ranked first with 43 articles. Word co-occurrence map of scientific products of the Quran and Hadith in health care were categorized into six clusters, namely: “complementary and alternative medicine,” “ethics,” “the effectiveness of spirituality on the treatment and control of mental illness,” “women’s rights and status,” “family planning, infertility treatment and abortion,” and “the views of the Quran and Hadiths on sexual issues.” Adopting a holistic approach toward the application of various aspects of the Quran and Hadiths on health care, the present study can be considered as a pioneering research whose results can account for determining relevant applied research projects.

  • The Ministry of Religious Congregations to People Affected by the
           SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus in Poland: Geographies of Care During the COVID-19
           Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The aim of this article is to analyze the empirical evidence collected in the form of in-depth interviews, observations, statistics and accounts concerning the assistance provided by female and male religious congregations in the fight against the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in Poland during the first year after the outbreak (March 2020 to February 2021). The paper describes the nature of the assistance rendered by religious congregations to the sick, to those affected by the pandemic and to healthcare facilities during the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in Poland. Our findings reveal that the activities undertaken and the support provided by religious congregations in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Poland have spanned many areas: medical assistance and nursing within the healthcare system, charitable work (including material, financial and welfare/housing aid), and pastoral, religious, educational, psychological, ecumenical, evangelization and missionary activities. The support provided by religious congregations as part of the coronavirus response efforts proved crucial and invaluable during the first weeks of the pandemic, that is in March and April 2020, when the healthcare system was faced with severe staff shortages.

  • An ICU Expansion of a Novel Chaplain Intervention, “This is My Story,”
           to Support Interdisciplinary Medical Teams Delivering Care to
           Non-Communicative Patients in an Academic Medical Center

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The intervention “This is My Story” (TIMS) was previously developed and presented as a case study involving chaplains and support to non-communicative patients (Tracey et al in J Religion Health, 60(5):3282–3290, 2021). This further investigation aims to determine feasibility by looking at eight criteria: acceptability, demand, implementation, practicality, adaptation, integration, expansion, and limited-efficacy testing (Bowen et al in Am J Prev Med 36(5):452–457, 2009). Chaplains conducted recorded conversation with a patient’s loved one, then it was edited for brevity and succinctness, and uploaded to the patient’s medical chart and can be listened to at any time by medical providers. A completed interview, posted to the patient’s electronic medical record (EMR), and able to be listened to by the medical team, was found to be contingent upon two factors: proximity to time between referral to call completion and amount of clinical experience of the chaplain.

      Abstract: Abstract Occupational therapy is a holistic profession that assists clients to restore meaning to their lives—a vital spiritual task. Spirituality is a multifaceted and multidimensional construct that occupational therapists need to integrate into everyday practice. In this study, Occupational Therapy educators’ and clinicians’ understanding of spirituality in their practice was qualitatively explored by purposively selecting 24 participants who attended a workshop based on an appreciative approach, in Gauteng, South Africa. Data were collected through self-report interview schedules and focus group inquiries and were analysed using the creative hermeneutic method. Participants expressed spirituality in occupational therapy as connectedness, meaning of life and client-centred practice.

  • GPs´ Personal Spirituality, Their Attitude and Spiritual Competence: A
           Cross-Sectional Study in German General Practices

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract To understand if GPs’ spiritual competence, their personal spirituality and attitude towards enquiring about spirituality in practice interrelate, we conducted a cross-sectional survey of 30 German GPs regarding issues of SC. We found correlations between GPs’ personal spirituality, their spiritual competence and their attitudes towards SC. The ability to perceive spiritual needs of patients was the competence most strongly related to GPs’ attitude towards SC. The competence with the strongest correlation to personal spirituality was Self-awareness and Proactive opening. No correlation was found between affiliation to a spiritual community and GPs’ attitude towards SC. The results show that GPs’ personal spirituality and spiritual competence are indeed related to addressing spirituality with their patients. To foster SC, training programmes should raise awareness for one’s personal spirituality and encourage one to reflect on spiritual competence.

Patients were screened for spiritual distress and offered a meeting with chaplaincy interns. Forty-eight patients were seen in clinic, 28 were screened, and 9 met with a chaplain. Most frequent domains of spiritual distress were grief (n = 8), feelings of abandonment (n = 5), guilt (n = 4), betrayal (n = 4), fear of death (n = 3), shame (n = 3), and trust (n = 3). Faith was relevant to treatment decision-making for 6 patients. It was found that outpatient chaplaincy services are a feasible intervention to address spiritual distress in immigrant and refugee patients.

  • Religion, Health, and Life Satisfaction Among Somali and Gambian Women in
           Norway

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article describes and analyses the religious justifications for the life satisfaction reported by two groups of Muslim women. Approximately, twenty Somali women and twenty Gambian women, living in Norway, who had experienced trauma and pain due to female genital mutilation/cutting as well as other traumas and hardships, were interviewed. While the Somali women adhere to conservative Islam and try to cope with their life through endurance and patience, the Gambians belong to a Sufi tradition and verbalise their dissatisfaction in order to receive help from Sufi saints. Therefore, there are two religious codes, here called emotionologies, within the Muslim tradition that have different impacts on the expression of life satisfaction and women’s ways of coping with pain and suffering.

  • Votive Offerings from Floresti Orthodox Monastery in Romania: An
           Ophthalmological Lesson from the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries CE

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since Antiquity, votive offerings were deposited in temples dedicated to deities in order to fulfil a special request of a supplicant. Later, in Orthodox churches, votive offerings entered in the form of anatomical ex-voto or tamata, metallic effigies that realistically represented the disease-affected portion of the body. In this paper, we show four tamata from eighteenth–nineteenth century identified in the museum of the Orthodox monastery of Floresti (Romania); votive offerings that represent ocular pathologies. Even if the supplicants did not have a medical background and often did not fully understand their diseases, the votive offerings demonstrate their ability to observe pathological changes, at the same time emphasising the importance of their faith in the healing process.

  • Symptoms of Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) in the
           Orthodox and Secular Jewish Communities in Israel

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Symptoms related to avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) are not well defined in the general population. The aim of this study was to determine whether differences exist in the presentation of ARFID-related eating disturbances between healthy, religious and secular Jewish children in Israel. Sixty-four families participated in this study. Parents completed standardized questionnaires to assess ARFID behaviors of children, parental feeding problems and overall functioning, anxiety and sensory-aversion. No significant between-group differences were found for almost all assessments. However, sensory-related pleasure and sensory-seeking behavior was greater in secular children. Overall, religious and non-religious Israeli children do not differ in parental-reported ARFID-related feeding and eating behaviors.

  • Forgiveness Mediates the Protective Role of Religiosity on Psychological
           Distress: Findings from Inmates in Eswatini Correctional Centres

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examined the mediating role of forgiveness in the relationship between religiosity and psychological distress among 244 inmates (Meanage = 31.6) in Eswatini, a country in Southern Africa formerly called Swaziland. Results showed that religiosity, forgiveness and psychological distress were related in the expected direction. Outcomes of SEM analyses indicated that high religiosity was associated with greater forgiveness, which in turn associated with low distress. While the presence of positive feelings of forgiveness was a significant mediator, the absence of negative feelings was not. Psychotherapeutic techniques targeting lower distress from religiosity should utilize forgiveness interventions with a special focus on the presence of positive feelings toward the offender.
