  • Abstract

    Background: Essential hypertension is the most common cardiovascular disease (CVD), affecting about one billion individuals worldwide.

    Aim of the study: was to evaluate the effect of nursing teaching program on knowledge and self-management behaviors for patients with essential hypertension. Study design; quasi-experimental research design was utilized to conduct this study.

    Setting: The study was conducted in the internal medicine department and outpatient clinics at Assiut University Hospital.

    Sample: Sixty adult patients of both sexes divided equally into 2 groups study and control group (thirty for each). Tools; four tools were used for data collection; Patients, assessment sheet, Hypertension Knowledge-Level Scale (HK-LS), Hypertension Self-Management Be-havior Questionnaire (HSMBQ)” and Nursing Teaching Program. Results; the majority of the study and control groups were female (83.3%, 66.7%), married (80.0%, 86.7%), illiterate (66.7%, 60.0), and house wives (83.3%, 63.3%).

    Conclusion: Nursing teaching program was effective in improving patients’ knowledge and self-management behaviors.
