the structural functional social support scale sfss
The Structural-Functional Social Support Scale (SFSS)结构功能社会支持量表
  • It has been developed especially for measuring disease-specific social networks and social support received by people having a serious somatic disorder or chronic disease(for exa-mple cancer).
  • In the questionnaire, theparticipants were asked to evaluate their received andneeded support at the work place or from the occupationalhealth services
The SFSS focuses on three aspects of social relationships:

(1) the existence and number of cancer- specific sources of social support,

(2) the amount of support received from these sources,

(3) whether this support corresponds to the expectations of the patient.

the multidimensional scale of perceived social support mspss
the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) 多元领悟社会支持量表
  • The MSPSS provides assessment of three sources of support: family (FA), friends (FR), and significant other (SO).

1、 It is short (12 items in total) and is ideal

for (a) research that requires assessment of multiple variables and (b) populations which, for one reason or another, cannot tolerate a long questionnaire

Sheung-Tak Cheng. The multidimensional scale of perceived social support: dimensionality and age and gender differences in adolescents 2004.

2、 MSPSS items are easy to understand (requiring just fourth grade reading level) and are therefore suitable for young populations or populationswith limited literacy level.

3、 Despite being a brief instrument, MSPSS measures support from three sources, and in particular, the SO(such as boyfriend、girlfriend, teacher and counselor)subscales rather unique among measures in the field.

Family subscale

3. My family really tries to help me

4. I get the emotional help and support I need from my family

8. I can talk about my problems with my family

11. My family is willing to help me make decisions

  • Friends subscale

6. My friends really try to help me

7. I can count on my friends when things go wrong

9. I have friends with whom I can share my joys and sorrows

12. I can talk about my problems with my friends

  • Significant other subscale

1. There is a special person who is around when I am in need

2. There is a special person with whom I can share my joys and sorrows

5. I have a special person who is a real source of comfort to me

10. There is a special person in my life who cares about my feelings

Emotional support:

involves verbal and nonverbal communic-ation of caring and concern and is believed to reduce distress by restoring self-esteem and permitting the expression of feelings.

Instrumental or practical support

involves direct assistance with household tasks and provision of material goods transportation, money, physical assistance, and it may also help decrease feelings of loss of control

Informational support

which involves the provision of information used to guide or advise, is believed to enhance perceptions of control by reducing confusion and providing patients with strategies to cope with their difficulties.

Social support


Quality of life

Cicero V . point out thatperceived support from friends may predict the patient's tendency to consider cancer as a challenge and to take an active role in therapy and recovery, whereas social support from family was not predictive of various states of adjustment to cancer.
  • Shelby RA point out that women with high levels of social support experienced better adjustment even when optimism was low. In contrast, among women with high levels of optimism, increasing social support did not provide an added benefit .

Higher social support scores were significantly associated with higher scores in speech , aesthetics ,social disruption and general mental health and with fewer depressive symptoms but not with general physical health or eating

For patients with AML, higher levels of available social support predicted better survival. Within social support, the availability of instrumental support showed more consistent associations with 2-year survival than the availability of emotional support.

4 influencing factors

Social support

4、Influencing factors



demographic factors





Religious beliefs may not directly affect self-efficacy and adjustment; however, cancer patients who have religious beliefs may experience an enhanced sense of social support from a community with whom they share those beliefs.

women are more likely to seek and utilize support by comparison to men. Whereas women expected staff to provide informat- ion and emotional support, men felt that emotional support from staff was inappropriate and perceived information as supportive in helping them deal with their emotions..

Clarke SA, Booth L, Velikova G. et al. Social support: gender differences in cancer patients in the United Kingdom : Cancer Nurs. 2006 Jan-Feb;29(1):66-72.

Methods: Cross-cultural studies
  • Sample: Age-matched samples of 135 BCSs from Norway and 148 from Finland were examined
  • Result:Finnish compared to Norwegian BCSs reported significantly less received social support from supervisors, while they received significantly more social support from occupational health service (OHS) .

The men who had lymphoma, had received chemotherapy, or had low education level needed more support. The need for practical support from the occupational health personnel was fivefold between the chemotherapy-treated and those not treated.

Unemployment, low level of education and single/divorced/widowed status were related to greater use of cognitive defense. Though these patients are most in need of professional support. women who used a defensive hostile style tended to receive poor social support.

Schroevers MJ:

1、sample:206 long-term cancer survivors

2、methods: This longitudinal study(3 months and 8 years after diagnosis )

3、tools:Social Support List (SSL) 、the Silver Lining Questionnaire (SLQ)

4、results:The findings suggest that getting support from family and friends in the period following diagnosis is an important resource that may help cancer survivors to find positive meaning in the cancer experience.
