After determine of education needs using the health belief model, education program were performed in intervention group. Data from each patient was collected by using questionnaire, at the initial visit and two month after education. Parametric and nonparametric tests were used for statistical analysis.
Results:
Independent t test didn’t show a significant difference between two groups in the HBM's domains before the educational program (p>0.05). After education the same test indicated a significant difference between two groups (p<0.05), except in perceived barriers and perceived benefits domains (p>0.05). In the intervention group awareness from 11 to 15(p<0.0001), perceived susceptibility from 27 to 30 (p<0.05), perceived severity from 20 to 25 (p<0.0001), self efficacy from 19 to 22 (p<0.0001) and self care behaviors from 95 to 117 (p<0.0001) increased.
