Then, data were collected using some questionnaires including demographic information, summary of self-care behaviors and Pittsburgh sleep quality .collected data were analyzed using SPSS23 software and descriptive statistical tests, independent t-test and Spearman correlation. Results: The level of self-care behaviors in 52.1% of patients was reported as semi-desirable while it was reported to be poor in 16.5% of them. Sleep quality was conveyed in 96.3% of patients in the semi-desirable state and it was reported to be well in 3.8% of them. Reverse relationship and significant statistical difference was shown by Spearman correlation coefficient between the score of self-care behaviors and sleep quality scores (r = -0.4, p = 0.000).
