  • Objective To explore the correlation among death conception,attitude towards death and quality of life among elementary students,and to provide evidence for further mental health intervention.Methods A total of 960 convenient sample of pupils from grade 3 to 6 in Guangzhou were investigated with death conception,attitude towards death and quality of life.Structural equation model was established to examine the association between death conception and death attitudes with quality of life.Results The average score of death concept was(13.24±2.78),attitudes towards death was(75.28± 12.21) and quality of life was(144.85± 18.60).Path analysis showed that the model was well fitted(x2/df=6.489,TLI=0.900,CFI=0.935,RMSEA=0.076,SRMR=0.041),death conception positively correlated with death attitude(P<0.05) and but showed no significant association with quality of life(P>0.05),death attitude positively correlated with quality of life(P<0.05),the effect of death conception on quality of life was fully mediated by death attitude(95%CI=0.003-0.057).Conclusion Elementary students have achieved a relatively mature understanding of death concept and attitudes towards death,and have moderate level of quality of life.The death conception has an indirect effect on the quality of life through the death attitude.Results highlight the need for the death education among primary schools.
