Background & Aim: The quality of life of patients with multiple sclerosis is affected by their disease conditions. So, the aim of this study was to predict the quality of life of women with inflammatory bowel disease based on coping styles, social support and sexual perversion mediated by resilience.
Materials & Methods: The present study is a correlation in which is analyzed in the form of a structural equation model. The statistical population of the present study was female patients who were members of MS associations in 2020. 147 people were selected as the sample using the available sampling method. The instruments were the Quality of Life Questionnaire, Resilience Questionnaire, Social Support, Coping Styles and Sexual Function. The data were analyzed using AMOS software.
Results: The results showed that the overall model has an acceptable fit. The Components of social support (p< 0.01), problem- solving coping strategies (p< 0.01) and resilience (p< 0.01) with positive quality of life, and emotional problem solving strategies (p< 0.01) and sexual perversion (p< 0.01) have a negative relationship with quality of life. Coping styles (p< 0.01) and social support (p< 0.01) predicted 0.48 of the variance of resilience. The role of resilience mediation is also significant for the components of coping styles, social support, However, due to the lack of correlation between sexual dysfunction (p <0.05) with resilience has no mediating role for this variable, in total, endogenous and exogenous variables predicted and explained 0.59 of quality of life variability.
