The inclusion criteria of the article were population: hypertensive patients in Indonesia, intervention: various factors related to cardiovascular complication prevention behavior, comparison: none, outcome: behavior to prevent complications, study design: RCT, quasi-experimental, cross-sectional, case-control. The published year is 2017-2022. Results: There are 288 articles found in the search. Articles were identified and screened resulting in seven articles that met the inclusion criteria. The results of the study found that factors related to behavior for the prevention of cardiovascular complications in hypertensive patients were patient knowledge about hypertension, self-efficacy, and social support, namely family support and health worker support. Another factor that was also found was the individual's coping strategies in taking preventive measures to prevent cardiovascular complications.
