Abstract

Cancer patients’ depression and anxiety have raised considerable concern. Therefore, this research examines the associations among cancer patients’ communication with health professionals, self-efficacy, information expectancy, depression, and anxiety to help cancer patients cope with adverse mood disorders. A cross-sectional survey of 593 cancer patients was administered. Findings indicate that patients’ information expectancy moderates the indirect effect of patient-centered communication on depression and anxiety, through the mediator of self-efficacy. The theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
