Objective: To evaluate effect of humanistic care on gynecological tumor patients. Methods: 112 patients diagnosed as gynecological tumor from January 2017 to June 2018 in hospital. The participants were randomly assigned to control group and intervention group. We use new nursing of humanistic care for the patients of intervention group. In control, the patients had traditional nursing services. The data was collected by medical history, Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) and Newcastle Satisfaction with Nursing Scales (NSNS). Result: Most of participants had cervical cancer [34 (30.4%) & 41 (36.6%)]. Besides, nursing measure of intervention group had better influence than traditional nursing measure of control group (Pain level, 1.21±0.33 vs 3.04±0.44; sleep quality, 13.74±2.34 vs 10.49±2.51). In assessment of patients satisfaction, the assessments of very well were made by 88 (71.4%) people in intervention group. Conclusion: humanistic care can be effectively improved the outcome of treatment on gynecological tumor patients. The nursing measure of humanistic care made not only pain level of patient in treatment process was reduce but also sleep quality of patient was improved. However, the improvement effect was not strong for the outcome of nursing so that the new nursing measure had low effective rate in the treatment process.
