Summary or Abstract : While medicine has made major advances in the treatment of cancer, there have been some limitations to a purely biomedical model. With these limitations, it has become more and more clear to researchers and medical professionals that there are psychological and social factors that may influence outcomes to cancer treatment. The current research explores some of the psychosocial factors that may influence the side effects of chemotherapy in woman with breast cancer. In this study, 27 women recently diagnosed with breast cancer completed a questionnaire prior to chemotherapy. This questionnaire examined each individual's hardiness, optimism, coping strategies, and mood. The medical records were collected from the medical facility after treatment was completed to examine the association among the psychosocial variables and the side effects of the chemotherapy. There were no significant associations between psychosocial factors and the side effects. There was, however, partial support for the proposed mediated relationship between personality (both hardiness and optimism) and mood through coping strategies. In this study, hardiness/optimism was negatively associated with negative mood, and this relationship was mediate by the relationship between hardiness/optimism and negative coping strategies. Similar relationships were not found between hardiness/optimism and positive mood and positive coping strategies..
