Background & Aim: Today, cancer as a chronic disease causes many changes in the physical, functional and psychological-social status of patients and their families. Self-esteem as one of the most important psychological concepts in these patients should be considered. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of self-care training program on self-esteem of cancer patients referring to Tohid Hospital in Sanandaj, 2020.
Materials & Methods: The present study was a before and after intervention that was performed on 162 patients with cancer referred to the oncology ward of Tohid Hospital in Sanandaj in two groups of intervention (n = 80) and control (n = 82). In order to collect data, demographic characteristics checklist and Rosenberg standard self-esteem questionnaire were used. The intervention was performed in the experimental group in groups of 5-10 patient for 45 minutes in 4 sessions during one week. Data analysis was performed using SPSS-16 software Chi-square and t-test were used to compare the variables between the two groups and Paired t-test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) were used to compare the values of variables within the group before and after the intervention.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of age in the intervention and control groups were 44/27± 12/55 ،  40/07± 11/17   years, respectively. There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups in terms of demographic characteristics (P> 0.05), except history of cancer in other family members. The results showed that the mean score of self-esteem in the two groups of intervention and control before and after the test did not show a significant difference (P=0.230).
Conclusion: Given that self-care training had no effect on self-esteem, therefore, it is suggested that self-esteem be assessed over a longer period of time.
