Abstract:
This secondary analysis of data collected in the Self-Help Intervention Project (Braden, Mishel, Longman & Burns, 1990) was undertaken to describe relationships of information seeking styles and sources of information used by women with breast cancer. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data, using frequencies and percentages for the demographic data. Correlation statistics were used to answer the research questions. A moderate statistical relationship (.6165, p =.001) was found to exist between the variable of marital status and the American Cancer Society as a source of information. Other data reflected low statistical correlations. Results indicate the need for more research on this topic with larger samples to discover if relationships may be strengthened.
