The experimental group received a spiritual self-care training program in 6 sessions of 60 minutes every day. Data were collected using a demographic questionnaire and a 22-item scale of suffering (CBC) and entered into SPSS V. 25 software, then performed using independent statistical tests, Chi-square, Fisher, and ANCOVA (analysis of covariance).

According to the paired t-test, the Mean±SD care range after the intervention was 43.47±6.47 and 60.59±6.73, respectively, which led to a significant difference (P<0.01).
