Abstract:
Topic: There are limited data on the factors associated with menopausal symptoms, lifestyle behaviors, and other factors. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between menopausal symptoms and lifestyle behaviors and other variables in breast cancer patients. Framework: Symptom Management Model. Methods: A descriptive and cross-sectional design was employed at two cancer hospital in Japan. The subjects were 162 convenience samples aged 40-65 years for women with breast cancer during endocrine therapy. Breast cancer patients completed a self-report questionnaire after giving informed consent. The main instruments were the Simplify Menopausal Index (SMI), the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), researcher-developed lifestyle checking sheet and demographic data. For the analysis, we divided the subject into 2 groups by menopausal severity. Multiple logistic analysis was performed to identify related factors of menopausal severity. Findings: Results: Breast cancer patients who had severity menopausal symptoms were significantly associated with under 50 years old, no period, having stress or depression, high cholesterol, however, not associated with diet or excise. According to the logistic regression analysis focusing on factors which had effects on menopausal symptoms, the odds ratio were as follows: under 50 years old (3.93), no period (5.37), total cholesterol (1.01), stress (1.87). Conclusion: From the results of this study, nurses can understand the menopausal symptoms by patients' background and their physical conditions. Nurses need give this information and support their self-care behaviors for breast cancer patients.
