Abstract

Background: Self-regulation in hypertensive patients is very important to improve self-care abilities.
Aim: The research objective was to analyze the effect of social support on self-regulation based on spirituality
in hypertension patients.
Method: The research design was analytic observational. A sample of 56 hypertension patients was taken by
simple random sampling technique. The variables measured were social support and cell-regulation based
on spirituality. The research instrument was a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using a linear regression
test.
Result: The results showed that peer support and health workers were mostly in the moderate category at
57.1% and 44.6%. Meanwhile, family support is mostly still lacking (75%). Self-regulation based on daily
spiritual experience has the highest mean value of 3,696. The linear regression analysis showed that social
support in the form of family support and support from health professionals had a significant effect on selfregulation
based on spirituality.
Conclusion: Self-regulation based on spirituality is influenced by family and health worker support.
