Abstract:

Rising Stars of Scholarship Invited Poster.

Background: Hypertension is an important health problem in terms of risk for stroke. Only 50% of patients with hypertension achieve their goal of blood pressure. Self-management program is widely recognized as an important method to control of chronic disease and improve patient health status.

Objective: To examine the effects of self-management program on blood pressure control in hypertensive patients at risk for stroke.

Method:A Randomized Controlled Trial design was employed. One hundred hypertensive patients at risk for stroke will be assigned randomly to the experimental or the control group. This program was based on Kanfer and Goelick’s (1991) self-management concept. The experimental group attended four phases including problem assessment and need identification phase, preparation for self-management phase, practice for self-management phase, and evaluation self-management phase. The outcome of this study was blood pressure control which was measured at baseline, 1, 2, and 3 months of follow-up. Data were analyzed by repeated measures ANOVA.  

Results:The finding revealed that the experimental group had significantly decreased in blood pressure at the initial, 1-month, 2-month and 3-month of follow-up and achieving in blood pressure control about 6%, 14%, and 36% at 1, 2, and 3 months respectively .   

Conclusions: Self-management program improved blood pressure control in hypertensive patients at risk for stroke. An effort to establish in large scale, long duration and sustainable self-management program is recommended.
