Preparing Patients for Cancer Chemotherapy: Effect of Coping Preparation and Relaxation Interventions.
Burish, Thomas G.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v59 n4 p518-25 Aug 1991
Sixty cancer chemotherapy patients were randomly assigned to one of four treatments: relaxation training with guided relaxation imagery (RT), general coping preparation (PREP), both RT and PREP, or routine clinic treatment only. Found that PREP intervention increased patients' knowledge of disease and treatment, reduced anticipatory side effects, reduced negative affect, and improved general coping. (Author/NB)
