Aims: This study aimed to determine the effect of spiritual-religious practice on the health and life satisfaction of war survivors hospitalized due to COVID-19.
Materials & Methods: In this trial 150 hospitalized war survivors with COVID-19, were randomly assigned into two groups. Spiritual-religious practice (reciting “Surah AlHamd” and “Ya-Allah”) was taught to the intervention group. The practice was done 21 times. Demographic characteristics, the score of the 12-Item Short Form Survey and of Life Satisfaction with Life Scale were gathered.
Findings: Of 183 war survivors, 153 were reluctant to participate in the study. The differences between before and after the intervention were significant in intervention group in the following dimensions: physical functioning (p<0.0001); role physical (p<0.0001); mental health (p<0.0001); social functioning (p<0.0001); bodily pain (p<0.0001); general health (p<0.0001); mental component summary (p<0.0001) and physical component summary (p<0.0001). The differences of physical function (p<0.0001); role physical (p<0.0001); social functioning (p<0.0001); bodily pain (p<0.000); general health (p<0.0001); mental component summary (p=0.04) and physical component summary (p<0.0001) were significant in control group, as well. At the end of the study, the mean life satisfaction scores in the intervention and control groups were 0.61 and -0.28.
Conclusion: The study showed that spiritual-religious practice along with routine medical care improved role physical, Physical Component Summary, and life satisfaction among war survivors hospitalized due to COVID-19.
