Description
Summary:This study examines the association between religiosity and physician lifestyle from a Family Health Strategy perspective. This is a cross-sectional study with 30 physicians, who completed the religiosity and lifestyle questionnaires. Among the participants, 70% (n = 21) had no "focus" on spirituality and health. The average total lifestyle score was 74.1 (SD = 8.1), but the "Physical Activity" subscale score was below average (3.4, SD = 2.37). We found eight significant correlations between religiosity and lifestyle subscales (p < 0.05). Greater religious involvement is associated with better overall and specific areas of physician lifestyle.
