Summary of "Quality of partner support moderates positive affect in cancer patients."

In the present study we examined whether four support quality-related characteristics moderate the impact of received partner support on cancer patients' positive affect. The support quality-related characteristics were: patients' perception regarding the willingness of their partners to offer support, patients' perception that partner support is certain, patients' satisfaction with partner relationship and overall patients' satisfaction with partner support.
