Aims: Iran's population is aging and the quality of life of the elderly in the armed forces, due to the nature of professional activity, needs special attention. The purpose of the present study was to determine the relationship between interpersonal sensitivity and quality of life in the armed forces retirees in Tehran, Iran.
Materials & Methods: The present study is a cross-sectional correlation with an analytical approach. The statistical population of the study consisted retirees of the armed forces over 65 years old who lived in Tehran, Iran in 2019-2020. By using Morgan table, the sample size was 373 people who were selected by available sampling method. The research tools included Boyce and Parker (1989) Sensitivity Questionnaire with confirmed validity and reliability of 0.81 and also older people's quality of life questionnaire (CASP-19) with confirmed validity and Cronbach's alpha of 0.78. Questionnaires were completed through one-on-one face-to-face interviews with senior retirees of the Armed Forces. The relationship between research variables was assessed by using Pearson correlation coefficient test and SPSS 22 software.
Findings: 91.42% (341 people) of 373 participants were male. 75.06% (280 people) were 70-65 years old. 75.06% of the samples were 65-70 years old. The mean score of total interpersonal sensitivity was 57.17±35.83 and the mean score of total quality of life of the elderly was 58.00±26.34. The results of Pearson correlation test showed that the level of significance between interpersonal sensitivity and quality of life in the elderly was equal to 0.41 (P-Value<0.05). The interpersonal sensitivity score and its dimensions were at a low level and the elderly quality of life score and its dimensions were at a good level.
Conclusion: The general condition about interpersonal sensitivity with quality of life in elderly retirees of the armed forces living in Tehran, Iran is slightly more favorable than the scores related to studies of the general elderly population of the country. This issue can be related to the systematic structure of the armed forces, emphasis and continuous training during service, the existence of active retirement centers, as well as the continuation in communication with colleagues.
