Abstract:The article discusses the effects of partner-delivered reflexology on patients suffering from cancer pain and anxiety, based on a study by N. L. N. Stephenson et al published in the 2007 issue of the periodical "Oncology Nursing Forum." The treatments implemented among metastatic cancer patients in a clinical trial are described. The Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) and the Visual Analog Scale were used to measure pain and anxiety, respectively. The researchers concluded that partner-delivered foot reflexology decreased pain and anxiety in metastases patients.
