A descriptive, survey design was used to test the revised CPNS, a 69-item self-report survey measuring needs of patients with cancer on two seven point, Likert-type scales: how important and how well met. The convenience sample of 580 patients, recruited from 14 agencies in a two-state Midwestern metropolitan area, filled out the CPNS and a demographic data form. The items were arranged in six categories, Psychological, Coping, Help, Work, Information, and Physical, according to the Wingate-Lackey Model. Using exploratory factor analysis, the best solution was found to be six factors for the two scales. Overall reliabilities as measured by Cronbach’s alpha for both the importance scale and for the how well met scale were 0.96. The reliabilities for the importance and how well met needs scales were: Psychological (0.92, 0.90); Coping (0.95, 0.93); Help (0.89, 0.90); Work (0.96, 0.96); Information (0.83, 0.81); Physical (0.80, 0.79). Duplications and items not loading on the six factors were eliminated. The findings will provide a sound basis for further psychometric study and will be more effective in assessing and planning for needs of patients with cancer in clinic and other community agencies.
