  59 coal workers, with pneumoconiosis, were divided into two groups. The experimental group, consisting of 29, was given 60 minutes of foot reflexology two times a week for 5 weeks. The control group, consisting of 30, were not given any reflexology. The scores of depression and anxiety were measured before and after in both groups. Data was accessed by Chi-square test, t-test, unpaired t-test, ANCOVA and repeated ANCOVA with the SAS program. Results: There was a significant difference of depression and anxiety between the two groups. Anxiety decreased in the experimental group, but not in the control group.



Foot reflexology was shown to be an effective nursing intervention program for coal workers’ pneumoconiosis.
