Abstract

Cancer is a chronic disease that has caused 8.2 million mortalities around the world and 347,792 mortalities in Indonesia. A good knowledge, a positive attitude, and a constructive coping mechanism are main factors of a supportive companion. This research aimed to understand the impact of experiential learning methods on the knowledge, attitude, and coping mechanisms of cancer patient’s companions. The research was designed with a pre-experimental approach using a one group pre-post test. The population were the companions of cancer patients at the East Java Branch of the Indonesian Cancer Foundation with a sample of 27 respondents who were selected using a purposive sampling method. The Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test was used to analyze the data with a value of p < 0.05. The significancy of knowledge was 0.000, attitude was 0.012, and coping mechanism was 0.109. This indicated that experiential learning methods increase knowledge and attitude. The use of experiential learning methods is effective to increase the knowledge of good and positive attitudes of companions and may improve support for cancer patients to aid successful treatment.
