Introduction: Patients-with cancer in chemotherapy wards, face high degree of mental tensions such as anxiety in disease. These patients require effective training methods to manage anxiety. Multi-media education is one of the most useful and flexible educational strategies.
Objective: Thus, the present study aimed to investigate the impact of multimedia education program on the level of anxiety in patients admitted to chemotherapy wards.
Material and Methods: The present study is quasi-experimental and was performed on 30 patients with definite diagnosis of cancer referring to selected AJA hospitals in Tehran. Sampling was done randomly. The researcher gave educational CDs to the intervention group and no intervention was performed in the control group. The Spielberg’s Anxiety Inventory contained 20 multiple choice questions. Finally, the data were analyzed using SPSS software 16.
Results: The results showed that there was no significant difference between the mean anxiety scores before and after the test group (before: M= 43.96±6.05, after: M= 43.40±5.95) and the control group (before: M= 45.13±10.06, after: M= 47.53±10.32) (P> 0.05).
Discussion and Conclusion: The results of the present study showed no significant difference between the mean anxiety scores before and after the test group, but it is recommended to perform further comprehensive studies.
