The purposes of this descriptive research were to explain self-care agency, quality of life, and relationships between self-care agency and quality of life, as well as explain the predictability of selected basic conditioning factors comprising, personal factors (educational background, family income, marital status, and religion) and health factors (functional class, post surgery complications, and period of time after surgery), on self-care agency and quality of life. The purposively recruited sample consisted of 100 post open heart surgery patients. The instruments were: (1) demographic data form, (2) self-care agency questionnaire, and (3) quality of life questionnaire. Data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, correlation coefficient, and stepwise multiple regression. The results revealed that: (1) mean of total self-care agency scores was 5.22 (SD=.47), and mean of total quality of life scores was 24.54 (SD=2.94). (2) There was a significant positive relationship between self-care agency and quality of life (r=.59, p < .01). (3) Two significant predictors could explain fourteen percent of the variances in total self-care agency scores: patientsÆ functional class and family income (p < .05). (4) Two significant predictors could explain twenty-three percent of the variances in total quality of life scores: post surgery complications and period of time after surgery (p < .05). Content analysis of qualitative data revealed three main causes that contribute to self-care agency: physical recovery and strength, self-care knowledge, and post surgery complications. Additionally, three causes contributing to quality of life were physical recovery and strength, family relationships, and self-reliance on activity daily living. The findings can be used to guide nurses and other health care providers in promoting self-care agency and quality of life for post open heart surgery patients.
