Abstract

Objective: this study was designed to assess the effectiveness of progressive muscle relaxation training (PMRT) in improving the quality of life (QoL) of patients with lung cancer receiving chemotherapy and their emotional states.
Method: Eighty three patients, who met the inclusion criteria, were randomly assigned to either the progressive muscle relaxation group or the control group. The control group received standard lung cancer nursing care, and the experimental group received standard care along with daily progressive muscle relaxation throughout their chemotherapy circle (21 days). The QLQ-C30 and POMS-SF scales were administered before and after the intervention.
Results: The Mann–Whitney U test shows that between-group comparisons of the enhancement in quality of life after intervention shows that the PMRT group had significantly better improvement in the scores of all scales (P<0.05) except Physical function (RF), fatigue (FA) and dyspnea (DY) (P>0.05), and the enhancement in emotional states after intervention shows that the PMRT group had significantly better improvement in the scores of all emotional states (P<0.05).
Conclusion: progressive muscle relaxation training can enhance lung cancer patients’ quality of life except function (RF), fatigue (FA) and dyspnea (DY), and can improve lung cancer patients’ emotional states.
