Background & Aims: Hypertension is a lifestyle-based control. In between education methods, group discussion can be considered as an efficient and effective method for health education. The present study has been conducted to evaluate the impact of family-oriented life-style based group discussion on controlling hypertension of patients which referred to Urmia Seyyed al-Shohada super specialist Cardiology University hospital.

Material & Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 50 hypertensive patients in an age range of 30-60 years were selected in conscious sampling, and randomly divided in two groups of 25 members repeatedly. The intervention group was divided into two subgroups of 12 and 13 members in order to take better advantage from intervention. Blood pressure of both control and intervention groups was measured and recorded prior to the beginning of intervention. In the experimental group, members participated in four sessions, each lasting for 1 hour, per week for four consecutive weeks. After two months of intervention, blood pressure of each patient was measured four times and the mean was recorded as the patient’s blood pressure after intervention. SPSS software, version 20, was used for analysis of the collected data.

Results: The results of the independent t-test showed no statistically significant difference between the control and intervention groups in terms of systolic blood pressure (p=0/112) before intervention; but, there was statistically significant difference between control and intervention groups in terms of systolic blood pressure after intervention (p=0.0001). There was no statistically significant difference between control and intervention groups in terms of mean numbers of systolic blood pressure before intervention (p=0/115), but after the intervention, there were significant differences (p=0.0001).

Conclusion: Family-oriented lifestyle-based group discussion can decrease the systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with hypertension; therefore, using this method is recommended to reduce blood pressure in patients with hypertension.
