Introduction: There is a relationship between stress and the onset of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). So, controlling stress is necessary in patients with MS. We aimed to investigate the effect of educational intervention base on BASNEF model to promote behaviors in patients with multiple sclerosis in stress management.
Methods: This is a quazi-experimental intervention study. This study was performed on 100 multiple sclerosis patients of 15-50 years old from Sina and Shariati hospitals Tehran. They were randomly divided into, experimental and control groups. The instrument for data collecting was a questionnaire established based on the BASNEF model. Both groups completed the questionnaires before intervention, and the patients of the experimental group participated in educational classes for 8 weeks. The collected data were analyzed using t, Chi-Square and Man Whitney statistical tests.
Results: Both groups did not have any significant differences based on demographic characteristics. Before intervention, there was no significant difference between the grades of behaviors of patients with multiple sclerosis. After intervention, a significant difference was seen in experimental group’s grades (P<0.001), but there was no significant difference in time management behavior.
Conclusion: The finding of current study confirmed the effect of educational intervention, based on BASNEF model, on promoting behaviors of patients with multiple sclerosis.
