One hundred and twenty patients receiving the treatments of oral cancer will be recruited from Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons outpatient departments in two northern district medical centers. The structured questionnaires including チuBeck’s Depression Inventory-IIチv, チuThe Performance Status Scale for Head and Neck Cancer Patients, PSS-HSチv, チuSocial Support scaleチv, チuSymptom Distress Scale-Chinese Modiffied Form, SDS-CMFチvandチudemographic dataチvwill be used to collect data. The data will be analyzed by SPSS for window15.0 in terms of the descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. The pチƒ0.05will be considered as the statistically significant level.

Results:

The prevalence of depression was 35%.The average score of the depression was 12.33, which characterized mild depression. The average score of the social support scale was 40.47, indicating an acceptable level of satisfaction with social support. The average score of the symptom distress scale was 42.43, and the patient had mild to moderate degree of symptom distress. The average score of the functional status scale was 193.21, and the patient had mild degree of performance distress. The patient whose job was affected by treatment and the patient with financial problems, late stage of cancer, recurrence of surgery, more complex treatment, low degree performance, serious degree of symptom distress, low degree of social support and low degree of functional status patients had higher depression. Five predictive risk factors were having financial problems, recurrence of surgery, low degree of functional status, serious degree of symptom distress, and low degree of social support.

Conclusion:

The result will be the reference for the nursing staffs to take care of the patients for increasing their accommodation and enhance their quality of life.
