There are many interventional researches focus on this issue in western countries. There is not only lack of evidence base prevalence of perimenstrual syndrome, but also never found any nursing intervention project focusing on women with perimenstrual syndrome.

The purpose of these series research project is to investigate the prevalence, symptoms cluster and characteristic; establish the systemic symptom management nursing strategies (PMS-SMP); determine short-and long-term effectiveness of PMS-SMP. To enhance the health related quality of life of women with Perimenstrual syndrome. Simultaneously, the PMS-SMP offers a research and clinical based protocol to demonstrate the independent nursing role and practice care model. The 3-year series research process will include three research domains.
