Exploring the Relationship Between Personality and Coping Styles in Bone Marrow Transplant Candidates


Over the last decade, more and more focus has been placed upon the psychological adjustment
of patients who have undergone bone marrow transplants (BMT). There have been studies that
focused on the coping styles and levels of psychological distress in patients immediately
after transplantation. Studies have been done based on a specific point during the process
or at multiple points throughout the course of the procedure and still other studies have
focused on assessment points several months post transplant. However, very little attention
has been focused on patients' psychological functioning prior to transplantation. The
purpose of the present study is to examine the relationship between personality traits and
coping styles among patients awaiting BMT.
