The purpose of the study was to determine the effectiveness of a biopsychosocial intervention program to reduce blood pressure levels and to improve adherence to treatment in patients diagnosed with Hypertension. The study was a quasi-experimental, with transversal design, and intragroup analysis for pre-post intervention. The sample was composed of 44 hypertension patients, without any other chronic illness and/or without diagnostic of psychiatric illness, atended at a Health Care Service from Cali, Colombia. Systolic (SBP) and Diastolic (DBP) blood pressure levels were registered by the health staff. A statistically significant reduction in SBD levels was found, DBP remained the same but stayed in controlled levels. The post-intervention changes in adherence to treatment were significant statistically (p = 0.000; n.c. 95%), 86,6% ended in a high level of adherence, and 11,4% ended in the middle level.
