Abstract: Introduction: Decision-making regarding treatment at the end-of-life stage is an important issue for the elderly and their families. Such decision-making may be influenced by activities that promote communication and physical health. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between participation in sports club activities and decision-making regarding life-prolonging treatment among the general community-dwelling Japanese elderly. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, which used stratified random sampling, 1,603 elderly people aged 65 years or older as of January 2016, living in Fukushima prefecture, Japan were enrolled. Data was collected by a self-completed questionnaire (effective response rate: 53.4%). The association of sports club activity participation with a preference for accepting or declining life-prolonging treatment was analyzed by multinomial logistic regression analysis. Results: Of those participating in sports club activities, the results revealed an odds ratios of 1.812 for participants declining life-prolonging treatment (95% CI=1.325 to 2.477) and 1.948 for those who preferred life-prolonging treatment (95% CI=1.160 to 3.271). Conclusions: The present study suggests that participation in sports club activities is associated with articulating decisions about life-prolonging treatment in end-of-life care. Consideration of patient involvement in daily activities in non-medical settings may enhance decision-making for end-of-life care planning.
