However, unfortunately, most of the health providers tend to ignore the religious issues in their cares. Given the importance role of religion on the physical, mental, and adherence to treatment in chronic patients, a study was conducted to compare the religious attitude in people with coronary artery disease and healthy patients.

During this period 320 eligible subjects (160 patients and 160 in the control group) were enrolled. Inclusion criteria for patients were coronary angioplasty results indicated the involvement of coronary artery or had a history of angioplasty or coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Inclusion criteria for the control group were no history of cardiovascular disease. The survey questionnaire consisted of two main parts, including Socio-demographic factors and religious attitudes. Collected data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics (Mann-Whitney U and chi-square test). Results: The mean score was 69.26±9.28 in patients and was 67.34±9.48 in healthy people. The Mann-Whitney test indicated a significant difference between the two groups in terms of general religious attitude (p<0.05). So that the patient group had higher scores of religious attitudes. The results of chi-square tests were significant relationships between age (p<0.0001), sex (p=0.003), marital status (p<0.0001), education level (p<0.0001) and social level (p<0.0001) in two groups. Conclusion: High levels of religious attitudes in patients towards healthy people could indicate the need of man to God in the face of the disease.
