Abstract

ABSTRACT Devi Setya Putri The Effects of Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) on Sleep Quality and Cancer Related Fatigue (CRF) in Cancer Patients Undergoing Chemotherapy xvi + 88 pages + 12 tables + 5 figures + 14 appendixes Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) can improve sleep quality and reduce the Cancer Related Fatigue (CRF) of patients, however, a research on the effects of PMR on sleep quality and CRF of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy is still limited. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of PMR on sleep quality and CRF of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. This study is under quantitative research with a single blind randomized control trial (RCT) design. The total sample of 90 cancer patients who undergoing chemotherapy were taken using consecutive sampling technique. Data collection was done using the PSQI (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index) and PFS (Piper Fatigue Scale) questionnaires. Data were analyzed using the Wilcoxon signed ranks test, and the Mann-Whitney U test. The results showed an increase in sleep quality as indicated by the mean value of sleep quality from 17 to 10 (p=0,000), and a decrease in CRF as indicated by the mean value of CRF from 3 to 2 (p=0,000). In addition, global sleep quality and CRF between the intervention group and the control group also differed significantly (p=0,000). Based on the results of the study it can be concluded that PMR can improve sleep quality and reduce CRF. The results of this study recommend that PMR be included in the nursing care plan of patients with nursing problems decreasing sleep quality and CRF.
