Introduction: Hypertension is a significant public health problem. This study aimed to determine the efficacy of hypertension self-management behaviors promotion programs among patients in southwest Iran. Materials and Methods: The present study was a quasi-experimental study performed among patients with hypertension in the villages of Shadegan County, in southwest Iran, from May to October, 2019. The participants were randomly assigned to the intervention and control groups (n=355 per group) and were followed up for three months. The educational intervention was developed based on the constructs of the theory of planned behavior. Data were collected using interviews with participants in the form of a written questionnaire. The collected data were analyzed in SPSS software version 16 using independent sample t-test, chi-squared test, and Multivariate Analysis of Covariance (MANCOVA). Results: The findings of MANCOVA analysis showed that the program implementation had a significant effect on attitude, subjective norms, perceived behavior control, behavioral intention, and hypertension self-management behaviors of the patients in the intervention group (p<0.001). Conclusion: The implementation of an educational intervention based on the theory of planned behavior among patients with hypertension effectively promoted self-management behaviors such as hypertension control.
