Introduction: Regarding the prevalence of psychological disorders in multiple sclerosis patients, some reports have considered the efficacy of a resilient model prior to previous treatments. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of the resiliency model on improving the quality of life components in patients with multiple sclerosis followed by three months.
Methods: This study was an experimental study in which pre-test-post-test design with control group was used. The statistical population of the study was 631 people. The sample consisted of 40 MS patients in Tabriz in 2018. First of all, 220 patients with multiple sclerosis, a quality of life test, were selected. Then, the subjects from the above-mentioned society, who were classified as unsatisfactory according to the cutoff criteria, were selected (82 subjects). 20 subjects were assigned to the experimental group and 20 controls were randomly selected. The intervention based on resilient training was performed in 12 sessions of 90 minutes, one session per week. After the end of the sessions, quality of life test for posttest was performed again in two groups and after three months after the end of the intervention, a post-test was performed. Data were analyzed using covariance analysis.
Results: All subjects were male and the mean age of the subjects in the experimental group was 42.35 ± 5.84 and the mean age of the subjects in the control group was 42.35 ± 5.84. Data analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the mean scores of post-test in the experimental and control groups (P < 0.01), so that the intervention improved the components of quality of life in the experimental group. Also, after a three month follow up, the model of resilience has had a lasting effect on the quality of life of MS patients.
Conclusions: Considering the positive effect of resilient education, the use of this training in planning mental health interventions, especially in patients with multiple sclerosis, is recommended.
