Objective: To determine factors that influence breast cancer patients' intentions to supplement with CoQ10. Methods: A survey based upon the expanded rational expectations intentions model was completed by breast cancer outpatients (N = 160). Results: A significantly positive relationship existed between referent other (the influence specific people have in terms of an individual's behavior) and subjective norm (subject's perception of how people view a behavior). Beliefs, referent other, attitude, and subjective norm did have a significant effect on intention to use CoQ10. Conclusions: Health practitioners may address supplementation with breast cancer patients with a better understanding of what factors impact supplement use.
