Aim: The systematic review assessed the effect of mindfulness-based interventions on the quality of life among women with breast cancer. Methods: PubMed, Cochrane library, EMBASE, Web of Science and CINAHL databases were searched for studies published. Our review assessed the effect of mindfulness-based interventions (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction [MBSR] intervention and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy [MBCT]) on quality of life for women with breast cancer. Two authors independently assessed the quality of all included studies using the Downs and Black Quality Index. Results: The search finally identified 15 studies. The MBSR intervention showed a significant effect between groups. The MBCT intervention also showed good effect on quality of life. Adverse events were inadequately reported. Conclusion: The MBSR intervention on quality of life among women with breast cancer was effective and safe. The effect of MBCT intervention on quality of life still needs more research.
