This presentation focused on the effects of nonpharmacological treatments for leukemia-related pain and fatigue. These types of treatments are becoming more prevalent in today's times due to the risk of opioid addictions with increased pain medications. The study looked at two treatments: slow-back massage therapy and music therapy. Both treatments offer various advantages physically and emotionally. The study separated 114 adults with acute myeloid leukemia into the two treatments group and a control group of standard treatment. The results showed back massage therapy had a stronger and longer effect on the reduction of pain and fatigue.
