Patients are exposed to stressors such as death anxiety despite the effectiveness of hemodialysis in renal failure. The aim of this study was to investigate relationship between spiritual well-being and sensation seeking with death anxiety in hemodialysis patients. The statistical population included 215 hemodialysis patients in 2013 that 138 patients were selected by the convenience sampling method. Data was collected by using spiritual well-being scale, zuckerman's sensation seeking scale and templer death anxiety scale. Data analysis showed that there was statistically significant reverse relationship between sensation seeking and its components with death anxiety as well as between spiritual well-being and its components with death anxiety. The findings indicated significant relationship between sensation seeking and spiritual well-being with death anxiety. Regression analysis showed that predictive variables explain 22% of the variance of death anxiety. Therefore it can be concluded that efforts to promote spiritual well-being and sensation seeking of patients can have important role in reducing their death anxiety.

Data analysis showed that there is a statistically significant inverse relation between sensation seeking and its components with death anxiety (P<0.05), as is between spiritual well-being and its components with death anxiety (P<0.05). The findings of this study indicated a significant relationship between sensation seeking and spiritual well-being with death anxiety. Regression analysis showed that predictive variables explain 22% of the variance of death anxiety. It can therefore be concluded that efforts to promote spiritual well-being and sensation seeking of patients can have an important role in reducing their death anxiety.
