Exploring prostate cancer patients’ self-management demands and social support experiences using questionnaire and behavioural diaries: Does social support buffer the relationship between coping and HRQoL?

Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Poster

Abstract

Men affected by prostate cancer can experience profound physical and psychological sequalae; and unmet support needs are prevalent in men affected by this disease. Social support has been linked to improved health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and coping strategies, but little is known about the relationship between social support, coping and HRQoL for prostate cancer survivors. This review aims to identify the mechanism through which social support influences the relationship between coping and HRQoL for prostate cancer survivors.
