dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among demographic variables, symptom distress, and quality of life in the elderly with cancer. A convenience sample was comprised of 50 subjects. Data were obtained from the completion of a Demographic Data Questionnaire, the Quality of Library Index-Cancer Version (QLI-CV), and the Symptom Distress Scale (SDS). Pearson product moment correlation was employed to analyze the relationship between selected demographic variables and the total QLI-CV as well as the four subscales, and the relationship between the SDS and the total QLI-CV as well as the four subscales. Positive relationship was found between age and the total QLI-CV as well as the health/functioning, socioeconomic, and psychological/spiritual subscales (p<.05). Symptom distress had a negative correlation with the total QLI-CV and all four subscales (p< .05). Individuals who were married or widowed had higher scores on the total QLI-CV and on the psychological/spiritual and socioeconomical subscales than those who were single, divorced or separated. Using stepwise multiple regression, symptom distress and marital status were found to be significant predictors of quality of life. Implications for nursing, and recommendations for further study were described.en_US
