Introduction: Hypertension is a chronic disease that leads to many complications in vital organs of the body and can reduce the quality of life of patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between demographic characteristics and quality of life of hypertensive patients referring to the Farshchian Cardiac Hospital in Hamadan.
Methods: This is a descriptive-correlational study. The quality of life of 282 hypertensive patients was evaluated in Farshchian Cardiology Center of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences at 2018. The data was collected using a two-part questionnaire including demographic questionnaire and quality of life questionnaire for hypertensive patients. In this study, validity and reliability of the questionnaire were confirmed. Data analysis was done using SPSS 23.
Results: 142 (50.4%) of the patients studied had good quality of life status, 135 (47.9%) had moderate quality of life and 5 (1.8%) had poor quality of life. The difference in mean of quality of life in patients under study was determined by the duration (year) of hypertension (P=0.011), occupational status (P=0.036) gaining information through television (P=0.444) and the number of drug use (P=0.026).
Conclusion: In this study, the relationship between patients’ quality of life and some characteristics was illustrated. Therefore, nurses and health planners should consider the demographic characteristics of patients as a health promotion factor in care and education.
