Introduction: It is important to provide psychological treatments to improve the resilience and quality of life of patients with hypertension. The aim of the present study is to determine the effectiveness of "Mindfulness Group Therapy" on resilience and quality of life in patients with hypertension.
Methods: The research method was semi-experimental with a pre-test-post-test-follow-up plan with a control group. The statistical population included men and women who referred to Atiyeh Hospital in Tehran with complaints of high blood pressure in the fall and winter of 2022, and 30 of them were selected by convenience sampling and randomly assigned to the intervention group and control group. Research instruments include demographic questionnaire, "Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale", "World Health Organization Quality of Life Questionnaire" and "Mercury Sphygmomanometer". The content validity of the instruments was measured by qualitative method and reliability by internal consistency method by calculating Cronbach's alpha coefficient and the reliability of "Mercury Sphygmomanometer"" by retest method with a time interval of 3 measurements on patients with high blood pressure. After conducting 10 sessions of “Mindfulness Group Therapy” for the intervention group, the data were analyzed in SPSS. 24.
Results: "Mindfulness Group Therapy" was effective on resilience, quality of life and hypertension in the intervention group (P=0.001). The effect of time on resilience, quality of life and hypertension was effective compared to the pre-test stage (P=0.001).
Conclusions: "Mindfulness Group Therapy" was effective in increasing resilience and quality of life and reducing blood pressure in patients with hypertension. It is suggested that in order to increase resilience and quality of life and reduce blood pressure of hypertensive patients, "Mindfulness Group Therapy" courses should be held for patients along with drug treatments.
