[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] Purpose: This analysis was performed to systematically review the recently published nursing intervention studies. Methods: The literature published on this topic was identified through the Korean Education and Research Information Service (KERIS), the Korean Information Service System (KISS), and National Assembly Library websites. Key words such as breast cancer, nursing, and intervention were used. The factors analyzed are as follows :(1) the characteristics of studies and study populations, (2) the classification of interventions, and (3) outcome indicators and their effects. Results: This review included 32 studies. Seventeen studies used a single intervention such as aerobic dance, TaiChi, foot massage, aromatherapy, or a stress-reduction method. Fifteen studies used combined interventions, including education, exercise, counseling, support, and a relaxation method such as yoga or meditation. The data on 47 outcome indicators and their effects were segregated into psycho/spiritual outcomes, stress coping, physical outcomes, cardiorespiratory function, symptom management, arm and shoulder functions, fatigue, and quality of life. Some interventions had positive effects on stress, arm and shoulder functions, and fatigue. Conclusion: Various interventions are available for breast cancer patients, and some of these interventions have had positive effects. However, more studies are required to develop evidence-based practice guidelines for nursing interventions.
