Title: “Awareness of Disease, Drugs, and Compliance among Hypertensive Patients Visiting two Major Hospitals in Northern Border Region of Saudi Arabia

Abstract: Hypertension is one of the most common disorders in the world, and is associated with serious short and long term complications. Awareness of the disease, drugs and patient compliance to the treatment can contribute to prevent these complications. To assess the knowledge and awareness of hypertensive patients about disease, drug, and compliance, in Arar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Cross-sectional descriptive study. Data was collected using interviewer administered questionnaire; constructed on the basis of Hypertension Knowledge Level Scale (HK-LS). Descriptive statistics was done for all variables, and chi-squared test was applied for nominal variables to assess correlations. The respondent were 72 patients, 53% were male, while female shared 47%. In our study the overall participant knowledge and awareness about medical treatment, drug compliance, and the disease was ranging from 60-86%. There was a significant association between age and the patient ability to define the disease, p=0.037. Also there was association between educational level and ability of patient to define the disease (p<0.001). However, there was no correlation between gender or job status and awareness of disease. The knowledge and awareness about the disease, drugs and compliance of hypertensive patients in Arar was good, well correlated with age and educational level and could be further improved by educational programs for these patients.
