Introduction

The caregivers of the psychic patients experience decreased quality of life (QOL).

Aims

The aim of this study is the determination of the effect of coping skills training on improved quality of life of these caregivers compared to traditional treatments.

Methods

The samples consisted of 82 caregivers of psychiatric patients who were admitted in the educational hospital of Tehran for the first time from 2015 to 2016. The caregivers were randomly divided into two groups including Interventional group (n = 41) who received an educational booklet in addition to coping skills training, and control group (n = 41) who received usual care. A two-group randomized controlled trial was conducted, including WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire used to collect the data before and after 90 days.

Results

The results demonstrated that there were significant changes in the quality of life of family after training (P = 0.05). But this change was not seen in the control group. The comparison of the two groups after intervention indicated, that the scores of the intervention group were higher than the control group in all dimensions. But these scores were significantly different in the psychological health and the environmental health.

Conclusions

To educate the coping skills interventions can have a positive effect on the quality of life of caregivers than usual care.
