Data were collected by a researcher-designed questionnaire, and checklist for recording blood pressure, weight, blood lipids and the presence or absence of recurrence in children in the
2 groups before and after intervention. Continuous care model was carried out on test group for
6 months. Data were analyzed by SPSS software using descriptive statistics, Chi-square, and Independent t-test and McNamara tests.

Results: The proportion of disease recurrence after the intervention in both case and control groups showed no significant difference (P=0.787), but mean of systolic blood pressure in both groups after the intervention showed significant differences (P=0.011). Also, the level of parents' knowledge ratio in both groups after the intervention showed significant differences (P=0.0001).
