The purpose of the study was to develop an effective model by utilizing empowerment concept of Gibson (1995). The model was aimed to improve the essential hypertension patients' self-esteem and strengthen their self-care abilities towards behavior change and sustainable proper health practice to control their blood pressure in order to prevent severe complications. The research design was a nonequivalent quasi-experimental with pre and post-tests comparison of two groups: experimental (32 subjects) and control (32 subjects). The essential hypertension samples were selected by the purposive match criteria from the Bangkok Municipal Health Center. This study showed the effectiveness of the empowerment process model that the mean score of self-esteem, knowledge, belief and practice towards hypertensive disease of the essential hypertension patients in the experimental group at the post-test, immediately after the end of the 4 day of the empowerment process intervention and 1 month later at the follow up, were significantly higher than those at the pre-test. The mean score of all above variables in the experimental group at the post-test, 1 month later at follow up, were significantly higher than those in the control group (p <0.001). The mean scores of systolic and diastolic blood pressure of the subjects in the experimental at the post-test, 1 month follow up, were significantly lower than those the pre-test and also control group (p<0.05). There were significant association of self-esteem, with belief, and practice towards hypertension disease (p<0.05). All subject were willing to participate in The Hypertension Patient Club of the 21st Health Center at the end of the empowerment process intervention. They made the commitment to continuously properly practice on self-care to control their blood pressure. Finally the model can be applied to the patients who had suffer from other chronic disease, as well.
