Chemotherapy is a pharmacological therapy to destroy cancer cells that attack the body, chemotherapy becomes a priority treatment in cancer cases since the 50s, the success rate of this therapy is also quite large and proved to have a major effect on the decrease in malignancy of cervical cancer cells. Quasi Experiment research design using a pre-test post-test with a control group, the study population was 81 cervical cancer patients who underwent chemotherapy, simple random sampling obtained a large sampling of 40 patients. Respondents were divided into two groups, each group of 20 respondents. The treatment group received spiritual caring with murottal, the control group received standard hospital therapy. Stress, anxiety, and depression were measured using the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS). The result of the paired t-test of the stress, anxiety, and depression in the treatment group was p = 0,000, which means that there was generally an effect of murottal intervention on stress reduction, anxiety, and depression. The results showed in the MANOVA test p = 0.015 (p <0.05), so it was stated that there was a difference in stress, anxiety, and depression between the treatment group and the control group. Test of between-subjects effect of treatment group and control group obtained p-value = 0.003, which means spiritual caring with murottal has a strong influence on stress variable, it was proved by observed powered value = 85%. Spiritual caring with murottal can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression levels in patients with stage IIIB cervical cancer undergoing chemotherapy.
