Abstract

This randomized two group pre-post test study aimed to explore the effects of music on sleep quality in breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy at The Faculty of Medicine Vajira Hospital, Navamindradhiraj University. Fifty subjects with poor sleep quality who met the predetermine criteria were equally assigned into the control and the experimental group with matches paired by four characteristics. Two out of five sets of music were selected by the experimental group as they preferred.They were allowed to listen for at least 14 nights before sleep during the chemotherapy cycle. The instrument used for data collection consisted of a demographic data recording form, the set test and the Pittsburgh sleep Quality Index (Thai version). Data was analyzed by descriptive statistics, Paired t-test, Wilcoxon Signed-rank Test, Independent
t-test, and Mann-Witney U Test. The results revealed that before listening to the music, there were not significant difference in average sleep quality scores, either in total or in each part, between the control and the experimental group (p>.05). After listening to the music, the experimental group had better total and set of sleep quality with a statistically significant difference (p < .001). Compared to the control
group at the post test, the experimental group had better total sleep quality with a statistical significance (p < .001)
