Background: Resilience as an individual's ability to maintain or restore mental health and physical function in the face of stressful events and adversity can be enhanced by educational interventions. The present study was conducted to determine the effect of self-care education by peer groups on the resilience of patients with cancer.
Methods: A randomized clinical trial (RCT) was conducted on 80 patients with cancer referring to the chemotherapy center of Ayatollah Yathribi Hospital in Kashan, Iran. The subjects were randomly assigned into control and intervention groups (40 per group). The intervention group was trained by peer group members in 4 sessions (one session per week) but the control group received routine care. The Connor-Davidson re- resilience scale (CD-RISC) was used to collect data at the beginning of the trial, and then one week and three months after the intervention. Data analysis was performed using independent t-test and Repeated measures ANOVA in SPSS software, version 16.   
Results: There was a significant difference between the mean score of the groups’ resilience one week after the intervention (p= 0.01), but no significant difference was seen between the groups’ resilience scores three months after the study (p= 0.11). However, based on the repeated measures ANOVA and the results of the model using the Huynh-Feldt correction, there was an increase in the resilience score of the intervention group over time (p= 0.008). Furthermore, there was a significant difference between the two groups in terms of the interaction of time and group indicating a significant difference between the two groups in terms of resilience score over time (p= 0.004).     
Conclusion: It is suggested that this intervention be provided by health care team along with routine treatments to improve resilience and mental health of patients with cancer.
