The article presents the impact of co-morbidity on self- care and self-efficacy among chronic heart failure patients. A non-experimental descriptive cross sectional research study was conducted at Sukantapally urban area, Burdwan, WB. Non-probability Convenience sampling technique used to select a sample of 56 chronic heart failure patients. Most (93%) reported two or more co-morbidities. The Association between Self Care Maintenance and CCI, Self efficacy and CCI have a statistical significant of p = 0.004 & p = 0.033 respectively. There was a significant correlation between the number of co-morbid conditions and self-care maintenance & the number of co-morbid conditions and self-efficacy. The higher number of co-morbid conditions among chronic heart failure patient, negatively impacts the patient’s self-care behaviour and self-efficacy. Chronic heart failure with multiple co-morbidity diminishes the utilitarian capacities of people and influences self-care and self confidence. On the other hand, with increasing age, the number of co-morbid conditions among chronic heart failure patients increases significantly.
