Abstract: 

Background & Aim: Heart failure as one of the most common chronic diseases in the world imposes high costs on health systems. There are several strategies to control heart failure which self-care is one of them. The present study was conducted to determine the status of self-care andit’s effective factors in patients with heart failure.
Methods: This study was a descriptive- analytic study to investigate the status of self-care in 248 patients with heart failure who referred in 2016 to Heshmat medical center in Rasht.
Samples were selected among patients with inclusion criteria by a gradual sampling. Data gathering tools were demographic questionnaire and information related to the disease and self-care index of heart failure. Data analyses were performed using descriptive statistics, ttest, ANOVA and Pearson correlation coefficient tests by the software SPSS version 21.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of self- care score was 44.26±13.13 which only 4.4% of patients had desirable self-care behavior. Most desirable Status of self-care was related to the subscale of self-care management. There was a significant relationship between self-care with age (p<0.0001), marital status (p=0.003), education (p<0.0001), and the status of comorbidities (p<0.0001).
Conclusion: Since most research participants had undesirable self-care, it is recommended that nurses pay attention to the self-care predictive factors in care and education programs for patients with heart failure.
