  • The current study had two goals; first, the study examined the relations among stress, physical activity, and health symptoms in cancer survivors, and second this study attempted to psychometrically validate an electronic daily diary measure of stress, physical activity and health symptoms in cancer survivors (E-Diary-CS). Participants were 20 cancer survivors who provided daily self-report data on their current level of stress, health symptoms, and physical activity, for 3 weeks using the E-diary-CS. Results of linear regression indicated that higher levels of stress explained a significant amount of variance in health symptoms (R2 = .215, p < .05). Neither physical activity nor the interaction with stress predicted health symptoms. The association between well-validated, commonly used baseline measures and daily diary scores were moderate to strong and in the expected directions suggesting the Ediary-CS is a valid and reliable tool to assess stress, physical activity and health symptoms in cancer survivors.
