Demographic data and type-D personality questionnaire, medication adherence scale in patients with heart failure, was completed by interview. Data was analyzed by SPSS software version 18 and using descriptive statistics and coefficient Pearson correlation.
Results: 75% of total systolic heart failure patients had type D personality. The %65 of total patients was poor medical adherence. There was a significant negative moderate correlation between Type D personality and medical adherence (p<0.001).
