A pilot study was conducted at the outpatient clinic of the department of medical oncology of Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre. The goal was to draw up an inventory of religious and nonreligious coping strategies of patients with a life threatening disease such as cancer. Current research focuses on various forms of coping.

When it comes to religion and worldview the Netherlands differs from the USA in important respects. In this article we explore religious coping in the context of the Dutch society.
