Objective: To assess effects of treatment environment and intensive nursing intervention on gynecological oncology patients. Methods: 108 patients diagnosed as gynecological oncology from July 2015 to July 2018. They were randomly assigned to control group and intervention group, the participant had the different nursing measure and new treatment environment in two groups. We collected the result that included quality of life, pain level, immune function and participants characteristics by completing questionnaires, collecting medical records and flow cytometer. In addition, the participants were asked to complete the questionnaires, such as Short Form-36 (SF-36) and Self-report questionnaires. We use flow cytometer (FCM) to assess immunity function of patient. Result: The participants of intervention group had higher increasing in CD8+ (19.88±2.40 vs 17.32±2.88). Additionally, most participants had mild pain in treatment process [30 (50.66%) & 42 (73.24%)] and few participants had severe pain. In addition, few participants had severe pain, very few participants had very pain experience and painless experience in treatment process. In four domains of quality of life, all participants were improved in all domains. Conclusion: Treatment environment and intensive nursing intervention improve the outcome of gynecologic cancer treatment. But the improvement was not significant in the treatment process.
