Background: The aim of this research was to investigate the relationship between perception of illness and difficulty in emotion regulation with the mediating role of marital quality of life in married women with breast cancer.
Materials and methods: This study was a correlational one in which the relations between research variables were investigated using structural equation modeling. The participants were 385 married women suffering from breast cancer who referred to Amol and Babol medical centers in 2018, selected based on available sampling method, and completed illness perception questionnaire (IPQ), difficulty in emotions regulation scale (DERS), and marital life quality. The proposed model was evaluated by structural equation modeling using LISREL software. The bootstrap method was used to test indirectly.
Results: Based on the results of this study, the proposed model had a good fittness (RMSEA = 0.057, GFI = 0.92, IFI = 0.98, χ2 = 0.225 and P-value < 0.05). Generally, the results showed that all direct pathways were significant (P < 0.05).
Conclusion: The results also showed that indirect pathways of illness perception through marital life quality with difficulty in emotion regulation were significant. The evaluated model has a good fit and is an important step in understanding the factors affecting the difficulty in emotion regulation in married women with breast cancer. Therefore, it can be useful as a model for designing and developing programs for the prevention of emotional problems in women with breast cancer.
