Support groups have become an important component for the treatment of cancer patients, especially breast cancer patients. Currently in Taiwan, both the incidence and mortality rates of breast cancer are on the rise. In order to better work with patients and their families, breast cancer support groups have been established. This study aims to investigate the degree of participation and satisfaction of Taiwan breast cancer support group participants. A questionnaire was mailed to 21 breast cancer support groups on Taiwan, resulting with 793respondents. Pearson-Moment correlation and multiple-regression were used to analyze the data. Most of the members knew the purpose of the groups and agreed with it. What they expected from the group was medical information. They considered the communication within the group positive and felt being loved in the group. Most of members were satisfied with the group. The degree of participant satisfaction with support groups included factors of understanding and agreement with the purpose of the support groups, interpersonal communication within the support groups and the marital status of being married. Recommendations were made concerning the practice and further research on Taiwan breast cancer support groups.
