Results : The results of this study indicate that there are significant differences in the level of pain after treatment between groups who only received standard analgesic and groups who received a combination of music therapy and art therapy with p-value = 0.008 (p <0.05). Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that the combination of music therapy and art therapy is more effective for reducing pain in people living with breast cancer than only standard analgesic.
