Study examines factors related to quality of life, life satisfaction, and spirituality in cancer patients compared to patients with a traditional rehabilitation diagnosis (spinal cord injury, amputations, and polio). Group differences were found across life satisfaction, spiritual well-being, and the quality of life measures used in the study. In general, cancer patients reported higher scores on all measures than did rehabilitation subjects. Age, marital status, work status, social functioning, and functional well-being were found to be associated with total quality of life.
