LOSTAUNAU, Vanessa; TORREJON, Claudia  e  CASSARETTO, Mónica. Stress, coping and health-related quality of life in breast cancer women. Act.Psi [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.122, pp.75-90. ISSN 2215-3535.

This study analyzes the contribution that traumatic stress, perceived stress, and coping have on the variability of physical and metal components of the HRQoL of 53 women with breast cancer. The instruments used include the SF36 health survey, the COPE Inventory, the Perceived Stress Scale PSS and the Peruvian adaptation of the traumatic stress scale. The analysis found medium and high levels of global HRQoL. The migration status, type of treatment and traumatic stress account for 30 % of the variability of the physical component of HRQoL, whereas traumatic stress, perceived stress and emotional oriented style account the 43% of the variability of the mental component.

Palavras-chave : Health-related quality of life (HRQoL); coping; perceived stress; traumatic stress; breast cancer; migration and type of treatment.
