Cancer Behavior Inventory V3.0

Cancer Behavior Inventory (CBI-l V3)

This survey contains many things that a person might do during and after cancer treatment. We are interested in how confident you are that you can do those things. Be sure your ratings are about your confidence even if you have not done it in the past. So, your ratings are about your confidence that you can do these things now or in the near future.

Please read each item. Then rate that item on how confident you are that you can do that behavior. Circle a number on the scale. If you circle a “9” you are totally confident that you can do that behavior. If you circle a “1” you are not at all confident that you can do that behavior. Numbers in the middle mean that you are somewhat confident that you can do that behavior. Be sure your ratings reflect your confidence even if you have not done it in the past.

Please rate all items. If you are not sure about an item please rate it as best you can.
