Background and Objectives: Emotional needs are the individual components effective in the patient's ability to deal effectively with disease and manage it. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the relationship between emotional needs and the level of self-efficacy of cancer patients admitted to omid hospital in Mashhad in 2014.

Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive study included 360 cancer patients admitted to Omid hospital in Mashhad. Data were collected from February 2014 until June 2014 by Census sampling. The data was gathered using three questionnaires including the demographic information, the Chronic Disease Self-Efficacy Scale (CDSES),and emotional needs. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 21 and Data analysis was performed by ANOVA, t-test, Pearson correlation and regression analysis statistical tests, based on the varible type.

Results: The results indicated that the overall score of self -efficacy was 5.56±1.91 out of 10 in patients with cancer which represents the medium level self-efficacy. The highest self-efficacy score belonged to communication with physician domain (6.84± 2.71) and disease management domain (6.32 ±2.36), help from family, friends, and community (5.79± 2.18), respectively. There was a significant and reverse correlation between the total score of self-efficacy and the score of emotional needs (r=-0.261; P<0.001). It means that the more increase in emotional needs fulfilment equals the more increase in the patients’ self-efficacy for the disease management.

Conclusion: According to the results, the increase in emotional needs of patients reduces the self-efficacy and consequently reduces their quality of life and increases the frequency of hospitalization. Therefore, more exact planning of educational and supportive interventions seems necessary for reducing emotional needs and improving self-efficacy.
