Abstract:

Poster presented on: Wednesday, July 24, 2013, Thursday, July 25, 2013

Purpose:

To map the specific features of health care and life style of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints (LDS Church) in the Czech Republic. 

Methods:

The quantitative part of the research was carried out by a questionnaire distributed among individual members of the LDS Church. The total number of all the questionnaires issued was of 300. For the data analysis, 161 questionnaires were used, which is a 53.7% rate of returns.

Results:

The results demonstrated that the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints adhere to healthy life style, refuse all the types of narcotic substances (coffee, black or green tea, alcohol and tobacco) and spend their time together actively with their families. They consider their health as a God´s gift, which must be protected. The Mormons do not refuse any medical procedures, they will accept transfusion or transplantation. 

Conclusion:

Mormons respondents stated that they were satisfied with the level of healthcare in the Czech Republic. However, they wish that the hospital staff treated them with higher respect.
