Jordan has dramatic increases in the prevalence of risk factors for heart failure. However, there are few studies addressing heart failure self-care in Jordan. Identifying predictors of heart failure self-care among Jordanian patients is crucial in providing comprehensive care including addressing risk factors. The study aimed to identify predictors of self-care behaviors among Jordanians with heart failure. A cross sectional study with a convenience sample of 300 Jordanian patients was performed in an educational hospital in the north of Jordan. Differences in the level of self-care between selected sociodemographic and clinical variables were identified using univariate statistics, and multiple regression was used to adjust estimates for covariates. The predictors of self-care were insomnia (p ≤.001) and marital status (p =.018). Identifying factors influencing self-care can assist with addressing the causes of insomnia to ensure effective treatment, providing patients with social support, and eventually promoting heart failure self-care.
