AbstractObjective: To test whether psychological distress and well-being are separate outcomes in the acute aftermath of cancer diagnosis. Methods: A con-secutive cohort of Chinese colorectal cancer (CRC) patients (N = 234) were recruited and administered measures of optimism (C-LOT-R), hope (AHS), social relationships (ChSRQS), depression (HADS) and positive affect (CAS) immediately and 3-month postdiagnosis. Results: Multinomial logistic regressions identified separate predictors for depression and absence of positive affect 3-month after CRC diagnosis, suggesting the importance of assessing and intervening well-being as well as distress in newly diagnosed cancer patients.
