Introduction: As a chronic and debilitating disease, cancer has many consequences, and leading a healthier lifestyle can affect the patient’s health. This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of healthy lifestyle promotion training based on cognitive-behavioral therapy on self-efficacy and psychological well-being of cancer patients.
Materials and Methods: The design of the present study was quasi-experimental with a pretest-posttest and control group. The statistical population of this study included all cancer patients admitted to Shahid Fayyaz Bakhsh Hospital in Tehran in 2019. Among them, 30 individuals who met the inclusion criteria and were willing to participate in the study were purposefully selected and randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The experimental group received 8 sessions (90 minutes each) of cognitive-behavioral healthy lifestyle promotion training and the control group did not receive any intervention. Data collection tools were the general self-efficacy scale and psychological well-being questionnaire completed by self-report. Data were analyzed using the multivariate analysis of covariance.
Results: The results showed that healthy lifestyle promotion training based on cognitive-behavioral therapy significantly increased the post-test scores of self-efficacy and psychological well-being in cancer patients (p<0.001).
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, healthy lifestyle promotion training based on cognitive-behavioral therapy can be effective in the self-efficacy and psychological well-being of cancer patients. Therefore, as regards the health of cancer patients, interventions based on promoting a healthy lifestyle can be used to promote the mental health of these patients.
