Clinical hypnosis versus cognitive behavioural training for pain management with paediatric cancer patients undergoing bone marrow aspirations

Record type: Article

A randomized controlled trial was conducted to compare the efficacy of clinical hypnosis versus cognitive behavioural coping skills training (CB) in alleviating the pain and distress of 30 paediatric cancer patients (age 5-15 years) undergoing bone marrow aspirations. Patients were randomized to one of three groups: hypnosis, a package of CB coping skills, and no intervention. Patients who received either hypnosis or CB reported less pain and pain-related anxiety than did control patients, and less pain and anxiety than at their own baseline. Hypnosis and CB were similarly effective in the relief of pain. Results also indicated that children reported more anxiety and exhibited more behavioural distress in the CB group than in the hypnosis group. It is concluded that hypnosis and CB coping skills are effective in preparing paediatric oncology patients for bone marrow aspiration
