This study aimed to assess the effect of training intervention on anxiety in patients with knee arthroplasty. This quasi-experimental study was conducted on patients who are candidates for knee joint replacement surgery in teaching hospitals of Bojnord city in, North khorasan Province in 2021. Patients were enrolled in three 90-minute sessions. In the first two sessions, the surgeon informed the patients about the disease, treatment approaches, surgery, and anesthesia, and in the last session, the clinical psychologist instructed them on how to control and deal with anxiety. Anxiety was assessed using STAI and APAIS before, immediately after the intervention, and one day before surgery. In this study, there were 90 patients with knee arthroplasty. The intervention was found to be significantly effective (p<0.05) in controlling patients' anxiety. In other words, state anxiety scores (SD) before, immediately after the intervention, and one day before surgery were 44.38 (10.76), 41.49 (9.41), and 36.19 (6.40), respectively. Moreover, trait anxiety scores (SD) before, immediately after the intervention, and one day before surgery were 43.87 (10.81), 41.27 (8.39), and 38.83 (6.56) which show the effectiveness of the intervention (p <0.05). Informing the patients about their disease and how to deal with it and giving awareness about the effectiveness of the operation by the surgeon and the clinical psychologist seems to be effective in controlling and reducing anxiety.
