The research statistics used were frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation. LISREL was used for structural equation analysis with the.05 level of statistical significance. Phase 2, the qualitative research method was employed to design a model of the health behavior promoting among primary hypertension patients through a focus group method including a brain storming approach. The target population was twenty experts in health behavior promoting.
