PurposeThis study aims to examine the supportive care needs of Chinese breast cancer survivors, and investigate the relationships with participant characteristics and quality of life.MethodsA total of 163 participants were recruited from a local public hospital and completed a self-administered questionnaire: the 34-item Supportive Care Needs Survey, the supplementary module of access to healthcare and ancillary support services, and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy.ResultsThe five most commonly reported unmet needs were all in the health system information domain (range: 55–63%), and the majority (84%) reported at least one unmet need in relation to information on healthcare. Stepwise multivariable regression analyses revealed that the time spent on travelling from home to hospital, receiving hormonal therapy, and physical and psychological unmet needs were independently associated with poorer quality of life among the participants.ConclusionsBreast cancer survivors perceive various unmet needs, and health system information is the most common one. Those who have more unmet needs in the physical and psychological domains were more likely to perceive a poorer quality of life.
