The probability of event value of guided imagery and music intervention effectively decreased fatigue 0.039 times in the intervention group compared to the control group. Guided imagery and music intervention simultaneously had an effect on fatigue reduction of 73.4%. It is concluded that guided imagery and music is a simple, economical and proven relaxation technique that is effective in reducing fatigue in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
