Anxiety will affect on their physical and psychological aspects and also pain severity. Because hypnosis is one of the most effective Non-pharmacological treatments for anxiety management, the aim of this study was to determine the effect of hypnosis on the anxiety reduction in burn dressing change. Methods: In this Study, which was carried out in the burn ward of Imam Reza hospital, 30 samples via convenience sampling were selected. Subjects (n=30) were assigned to 2 groups. The control group (N=15) and experimental group (N=15). All group members received the usual nursing care and same drugs, and before and after dressing change anxiety scores were measured using Burn Specific Pain Anxiety Scale (BSPAS). The experimental group was under hypnosis inductions during the dressing change. The obtained data are analyzed by analysis of covariance at the significant level (p<0/01). Results: Results indicated a significant difference between pretest and posttest of experimental group. While this difference whether between pretest of control and experimental groups or between pretest and posttest of control group was not seen. Conclusion:Regarding the findings of this study, hypnosis is effective on anxiety reduction in burn dressing change.
