Abstract

Aim: To conduct a scoping review to discover what is known about the presence of spirituality and religiosity in people who have received a kidney transplant. Design: Using Arksey and O'Malley's five-stage framework, a scoping review of seven key databases was performed in June 2020. The scoping review follows the PRISMA extension for scoping review process. Methods: CINAHL, MEDLINE, Embase, OvidPsychINFO, JBI, Scopus and Cochrane databases were searched to identify original research, from which seven studies were identified with only four meeting the criteria. The search strategy focused on studies that were published between January 2000-May 2020. Results: In synthesizing the available research, two key areas of interest were identified within the included studies, (1) clinical outcomes (medical adherence, renal function and transplant-related outcomes) and (2) well-being outcomes (locus of control and coping).
