For analyzing, descriptive and analytic tests such as mean differences test and analysis of variance were used using SPSS 20. Data was analyzed using SPSS 21 software, t-paired and t-independent test.
Chi-square and analysis of variance showed that the two groups had no significant difference in terms of demographic characteristics, effective variables, and mean of quality of life in terms of dimensions and in general. And the mean of quality of life of the patients in the intervention group was significantly higher than the control group two months after the intervention (P<0.05).
