Abstract:

This study examines the relationship between perceived social support and emotional well-being when predicting various types of information seeking behaviors of breast cancer patients in the Comprehensive Health Enhancement Support System (CHESS)—a well-established ICCS. The findings revealed that women with breast cancer sought out more health-related information when they perceived low levels of social support than high levels of social support. Also, the negative relationship between perceived social support and different information seeking behaviors – Total Information Service, Experiential Information Service, and Psychosocial Topic Use - was greater for those who reported high levels of emotional well-being than those who experienced low levels of emotional well-being. Regarding specific topic use, patients with low levels of social support and high sense of emotional well-being used psychosocial information the most as a way to compensate the deficiency in social networks.
