Purpose: To determine the knowledge and treatment compliance with hypertension, directions
for the aspects of implementation, and related factors to patients with hypertension using
Primary Health Cares and Private Clinics·Hospitals. Method: General characteristics and High
blood pressure-related properties(17 questions), Hypertension knowledge measures(20 questions),
and Treatment Compliance(22 questions) were used. Result: 1. The patients of Private
Clinics·Hospitals had statistically significantly higher drinking habits than Primary Health Care
centers. The patients of Private Clinics·Hospitals had statistically significantly higher rate of no
family history of hypertension than Primary Health Care centers. 2. Primary Health Care centers
had statistically significantly higher knowledge of hypertension than Private Clinics·Hospitals.
Primary Health Care centers had statistically significantly higher treatment compliance than
Private Clinics·Hospitals. Conclusion: Both Primary Health Care centers and Private
Clinics·Hospitals are high medication compliance but low lifestyle compliance with hypertension.
We need to recognize the importance of lifestyle compliance, to apply proper programs and to
provide therapists’ aggressive intervention.
