The incidence of psychological distress (such as anxiety and depression) is high in COPD patients. CBT has been proved to reduce depression and anxiety and enhance quality of life. This meta-analysis evaluated the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy(CBT) on patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD). The following electronic databases were searched from inception to March 2020: PubMed, EMBase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Medline, OVID, CINAHL, Chinese Biomedical Literature Database (CBM), China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Wangfang Database (WF), PsycARTICLES, VIP database. The Scopus and Google scholar database that we did not use. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that compared CBT with routine methods of care in COPD were retrieved in electronic databases. The Cochrane Risk of Bias Tool and Review Manager version 5.3 were used for risk of bias assessment and meta-analysis, respectively. Both data synthesis and descriptive analysis were used for outcome assessment. A total of 10 RCTs involving 1173 patients were included. Data synthesis showed that CBT was statistically significant in improving short- and medium-term depression and treatment compliance. Medium-term anxiety and quality of life were improved among COPD patients receiving CBT, although no significant effect was found for short-term quality of life and anxiety. Descriptive analysis showed that CBT could reduce dyspnea. No clear evidence supports the effectiveness on improving self-efficacy in COPD patients with the use of CBT (P > 0.05). CBT can be a useful strategy to improve the symptoms of depression, dyspnea and treatment compliance in patients with COPD. It can also improve patients’ quality of life and anxiety to some extent, but there is still lack of strong evidence in improving patients’ self-efficacy.
