Introduction: The different behaviors of patients to maintain or enhance their dignity, is important to make them feel valuable. This study was conducted to investigate the dignity conserving repertoire and its related factors in heart failure patients.
Methods: In this descriptive, cross-sectional study, 130 patients with class II to IV heart failure were selected upon to researcher characteristics and in unrandomized sampling (Purposive) among patients in Hazrate Rasoolakram, Imam Hossein and Shariati Hospital of Tehran in 2013. After obtaining written and oral consent from samples, demographic questionnaire and dignity conserving repertoire questionnaire (DCRQ) completed by the patients. The data were analyzed by descriptive statistic methods and analytical statistic tests such as: Pearson correlation, One-Way ANOVA and Independent-Sample T Test.
Results: The results indicated that the average age of patients was 62±13.9 year and the majority (51.5%) of them were illiterate and the average of their monthly income were less than ten million IR. Rials per month (92.3 percent). The mean score of dignity conserving repertoire was 3.6±0.8. The highest mean score were obtained for the acceptance dimension and the lowest mean score were obtained for role performance dimension. ANOVA test with P<0.05 revealed a significant difference in the mean of dignity conserving repertoire score between two mentioned dimensions. Pearson statistic test with P<0.05 showed significant correlation between age and dignity conserving repertoire and between hospitalization number and dignity conserving repertoire.
Conclusion: As the study showed that the patients with heart failure displayed intermediate level of dignity conserving repertoire, it seems that using strategies to improve their views and performance in order to increase their sense of value is recommended.
