Background & Aims: Hypertension is a major public health issue. Lack of medication adherence in patients with hypertension can lead to adverse outcomes. Therefore, patients need to be educated on how to control their blood pressure and increase their behavioral preventive skills. Among the numerous models of health education, BASNEF model is the most comprehensive model used to study, identify and create new behaviors. This study aimed to determine the effect of an educational intervention based on BASNEF model on the medication adherence in patients with hypertension.

Materials & Methods: This quasi-experimental study with pretest-posttest design conducted on 80 patients with hypertension referred to Health Centers in Urmia, Iran, and met the eligibility criteria. They were selected using convenience sampling method and then, randomly assigned to two groups as control and experimental. A 4-part questionnaire was used for collecting the data. The collected data was analyzed by SPSS v.16 software using descriptive and inferential statistics (independent t-test, Mann-Whitney U test and Chi-square test).

Results: The results showed that the mean score of medication adherence in patients with hypertension in the experimental group was significantly more than the control group (P<0.001).

Conclusion: It seems that educational intervention based on BASNEF model has considerable advantages and increases the medication adherence in patients with hypertension significantly. Therefore, it is recommended to apply this educational model as a key complementary factor to increases compliance of patients with hypertension.
