  Background & Aims : The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of stress management training through cognitive behavioral method and relationship skills training with end of life patient for increasing life quality of end of life patients’ family.

  Materials & Methods : This quasi-experimental study was conducted by a pretest, post-test, and follow up. The relatives of 30 end of life admitted patients were randomly assigned into three equal groups. The first group received stress management training through cognitive behavioral method. The second group received relationship skills training with end of life patient. The third group didn’t receive any intervention and was the control group. Interventions were done by eight weekly training sessions in both intervention groups. Data were gathered by WHOQOL-BREEF questionnaire in pretest, post-test, and two months after the end of the training. The data were analyzed by analysis of variance and repeated measurements.

  Results : Findings showed the efficacy of both types of intervention but there was a significant difference (p<0.01) between stress management training through cognitive behavioral method and relationship skills training with end of life patient on increasing family life quality in the follow up.

  Conclusion : Stress management training through cognitive behavioral method is more effective than relationship skills training on increasing the quality of family life.
