Given the high comorbidity of mental conditions and chronic pain in cancer, there is a need for development and administration of interventions for this population. This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of mindfulness-integrated cognitive-behavioral therapy (MiCBT) in breast cancer pain management.
In this clinical trial, 24 patients with breast cancer from Omid Hospital in Mashhad were selected via a purposive sampling method and randomly assigned to two groups of intervention (N = 12) and control (N = 12). The participants were assessed using the Short Cancer Pain Scale, Pain Self-Efficacy Questionnaire, and Pain Catastrophizing Scale before, immediately after, and one month after the intervention. The participants in the intervention group received MiCBT for 8 weeks. The control group did not receive any intervention from the research team during the research period. Descriptive statistics (percentage, frequency, mean and standard deviation), chi-square tests, t-tests, and multivariate analysis of covariance were used for data analysis.
After controlling for the pretest scores, there were significant differences between control and intervention groups in perceived pain, pain catastrophizing, and pain self-efficacy immediately and one month after the intervention (P > 0.001). The perceived pain, pain catastrophizing decreased and pain self-efficacy increased immediately and one month after the intervention (P > 0.001). Eta square showed 0.85,0.78 and 0.70 change in perceived pain, pain catastrophizing, and pain self-efficacy immediately and one month. In the follow-up phase, Eta squre were 0.87,0.75 and 0.79 for perceived pain, pain catastrophizing, and pain self-efficacy respectively.
MiCBT is effective in improving pain, pain self-efficacy, and pain catastrophe in patients with breast cancer. Therefore, considering the cost-effectiveness and availability, this program is recommended as a complementary treatment for breast cancer patients.
