Social Workers Luncheon: Spirituality & Religiosity in Adolescent Hemophilia Patients

September 19, 2014
1:30 PM to 2:45 PM
Audience: 
Social Workers

This presentation will provide an overview of a social work research study conducted with adolescent hemophilia patients at Rush Hemophilia & Thrombophilia Center, with a focus on pain, chronic disease self-efficacy, and spirituality/religiosity. As parents may influence the beliefs of their offspring, a measurement of spirtuality/religiosity of the parent primarily involved in the adolescent’s care was also collected. A description of the three survey instruments used for data collection will be described. The study rationale, design, preliminary results and implications for further research will be shared. Through this presentation, it is hoped participants will learn about implications for this research with adolescents with hemophilia in their own practices. In addition, it is hoped that participants will consider initiating research studies on topics of interest at their centers.
