Introduction: Subjective well-being is one of the important constructs of mental health and identifying the factors affecting it is of paramount importance. Hence, the purpose of this study was to predict the subjective well-being of cancer patients based on mindfulness and perceived self-efficacy.                               
Methods: In this descriptive-correlational study, 150 cancer patients of in Tabriz hospitals were selected through convenience sampling in 2016. Data collection tools included three valid and reliable scales: Molavi’s subjective well-being, Baer’s mindfulness, and Schwarzer’s self- efficacy. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and regression analysis.                                
Results: Findings showed that there was a significant positive correlation between mindfulness, perceived self-efficacy and subjective well-being (sig=0/01). Regression analysis indicated that mindfulness 17/20% and perceived self-efficacy 27/00% predicting of it.                                                           
Conclusion: Increased mindfulness and perceived self-efficacy can be used to enhance cancer patients’ subjective well-being as well as to improve their life satisfaction. Hence, it is suggested psychologists in their prevention and intervention programs in order to promote mental health and subjective well-being of cancer patients pay special attention to self-care.
Keywords: Subjective well-being, mindfulness, perceived self-efficacy, cancer patients.
