Effect of psychological care given to the women who underwent hysterectomy before and after the surgery on depressive symptoms, anxiety and the body image levels.

This study was conducted for the purpose of evaluating the effect of the psychological care given to women before and after hysterectomy surgery on depression levels, anxiety and body image. This experimental study was conducted in the gynecological oncology surgery clinic of Samsun Education and Research Hospital in Turkey between the dates of January 2018 and June 2018. Those who meet the sample selection criterion and agreed to participation to the study among the women who were admitted to the clinic for hysterectomy were assigned randomly to the experimental and control groups. 42 women in total including 21 women in each of experimental and control groups formed the sample of the study. The effect of the psychological care was evaluated through Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and Body Catherix Scale (BCS). The evaluation measurements were conducted as pre-test, post-test and follow-up (2-months post-test). The BDI and STAI scores of the women who receive psychological care have decreased and their BPS scores have increased. On the contrary, BDI and STAI scores of the women who receive psychological care in the experimental group have increased and their BCS scores have decreased. These findings show that psychological care has positive effects on depressive symptoms, anxiety and the body image in the women who underwent hysterectomy.IMPACT STATEMENTWhat is already known on this subject?
