Abstrakt

This mixed-methods study investigated the feasibility of a series of short Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) sessions for 4 women with gynecologic cancer undergoing active treatment, in a Greek hospital setting. Pre/post session measurements of HADS, FACT-G, semi-structured interviews following therapy, and therapists’ notes. The women reported pre-post gains for hope and fatigue via 10-point Likert scales, but no consistent changes to self-reported anxiety and depression. In follow-up interviews, all women reported that the music helped them cope with the disease and allowed them to deal with interpersonal and spiritual issues. GIM can be feasible for this population, provided that flexibility on scheduling and location are considered.
