The Effects of Cancer-related Characteristics and Cancer Coping on Posttraumatic Growth of Cancer Survivors
Yeong Mi Ha , Seung Kyoung Yang
This study was conducted to identify contributing factors of posttraumatic growth (PTG) of cancer survivors by examining relationships between cancer-related characteristic, cancer coping and PTG.
A total of 135 cancer survivors who completed their cancer treatment were recruited. Data were collected from January 16 to February 6, 2015 and SPSS ver 20.0 program was used for the analysis. Descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficients and multiple regression were used for staitstics.
The study results show that the mean score of interpersonal cancer coping was 1.99(±0.54), intrapersonal cancer coping 2.31(±0.53), posttraumatic growth 2.65(±0.94). As results of multiple regression analysis, the factors affecting PTG were intrapersonal cancer coping and perceived severity of cancer explained cancer survivors`` PTG with 49.3%.
Based on the findings that intrapersonal cancer coping and perceived severity of cancer significantly influence PTG, there is a need to develope an intervention program for enhancing intrapersonal cancer coping to improve PTG of cancer survivors. However, further studies with a larger random sample and more detailed research design are necessary.
