Keywords:Self-Care Behaviors, Level blood pressure, Patients Hypertension
The purpose of this quasi-experimental study aimed to investigate the effects of the self-care behavior promotion program of uncontrolled hypertension patients. The 22 samples were uncontrolled hypertensive patients residing in Moo 6, Ban Pak Bang, Ranot Sub-district, Ranot district, Songkhla Province. The sample invited to participate in a 4 weeks’ self-care program and follow up by home visits. The data were collected using a self-care behavior questionnaire which was checked by 3 experts. Its reliability Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was 0.75. The findings showed that post-participating in the self-care behavior promotion program, the knowledge of hypertension among samples (p-value <0.001) and self-care behavior score (p-value <0.001) was significantly higher than pre-participating the program. In addition, the blood pressure of post-participating had significantly lower than pre-participating the program (p-value <0.001) The results suggested that public health nurses who are working in the community are able to use the program of health promotion on self-care behavior as a guideline to encourage hypertensive patients to control their blood pressure in a normal range.
