Multiple sclerosis is one of the most common chronic diseases of the central nervous system. The chronic nature of the disease, the lack of definitive treatment and the involvement of a person at a young age can have a detrimental effect on the quality of life and the severity of fatigue. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of group-based mental-awareness stress reduction program on quality of life and fatigue severity in MS patients.
The present study was quasi-experimental with the experimental and control group. The sampling method was a general recall between the members of MS Society of Tehran province and then 24 patients with MS diagnosis were randomly assigned to the experimental and control groups. Quality of life questionnaires of MS patients and fatigue severity measurements were completed. Data were analyzed using one-variable covariance statistical model.
The findings of this study showed that among the mean scores of some subscales of quality of life including physical performance, role playing in relation to physical and mental status, energy, psychological well-being, health threats, perception of health, satisfaction with performance Sex, quality of life and fatigue severity of the experimental and control groups were significantly different (P <0.05).
The results show that the program of reduction of consciousness-based stress is effective in decreasing fatigue and increasing some of the subscales of quality of life in MS patients. This method can be used to improve the quality of life and intensity of fatigue caused by MS and its empowerment.
