Intervention group was provided with psychological rehabilitation training on the basis of control group.

The differences between the scores before and after treatment were calculated as well. Results: the shift in the scores for anxiety, depression and life quality were greater in the intervention group than in the control group. Moreover, the differences were statistically significant (for the anxiety and depression scores, P < 0.001; for the life quality scores, t=2.650 and P=0.009).
