Abstract Aims: patients who take self-care responsibility have been reported to be in less or no need of drug interventions. In this line, the present study was implemented to determine the self-care ability among patients with heart failure. Methods: The present descriptive cross-sectional study has been carried out on 72 patients with heart failure and at least 18 years of age admitted to Imam Khomeini hospital of Ardebil within the time interval of late May to late July, 2010. Data were collected by the European questionnaire of self-care behaviors and were analyzed by SPSS 17 statistical software and descriptive-statistical tests. Results: Self-care ability with the average of 41.18 (±6.26) was found to be in a moderate level. Statistical analysis showed significant relationship between heart failure, age, marital status, education, history of training, monthly income, development of other chronic disorders and profession with self-care agency (p< 0.05), and no significant correlation has been found between the place of residence and gender with self-care ability (p> 0.05). Conclusion: The results indicated moderate self-care ability among the study participants which is affected by basic influential factors including the level of patients' health. Therefore, nurses are required to identify help-seekers' need while performing nursing interventions and investigating self-care behaviors and design and implement planned training to promote self-care ability among patients.
