ABSTRACT

The research investigated the influence of religiosity on the psychological well-being (PWB) of persons with chronic kidney disease (CKD) receiving dialysis treatment at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital-Ghana. The descriptive cross-sectional survey design was employed and the purposive sampling technique was used in selecting sixty-two (62) CKD patients for the study. Data was collected on the respondents’ demographic characteristics, their religiosity, and their PWB using demographic questionnaire, adapted Centrality of Religiosity Scale interreligious version (CRSi-18) and an adapted Ryff’s Psychological Well-being Scale (SPWB-32). Results from Pearson’s product moment correlations revealed that overall levels of religiosity had a significant positive relationship with overall levels of PWB. Again, four components of religiosity (ideological, public practice, private practice, and experiential) had significant positive relationship with overall PWB. From hierarchical regression analysis, experiential religiosity was found to be the most significant predictor of the PWB of CKD patients. Further, partial correlation also found that age and duration of respondents’ CKD had significant influence on the relationship between respondents’ religiosity and their PWB. Finally, findings from independent samples t-test revealed no gender difference in the CKD patients overall PWB. It was recommended that healthcare agencies in Ghana should encourage religious-based interventions in Ghanaian health services in order to address patients’ religious needs in relation to their PWB.
