Pearson test was used to analyze the data. Result: There were a significant association between self-care management process (r= 0.590; p=0.000), family well-being (children) (r=0.331; p=0.000) and physical self-care. However, there were no relationship between family well-being (parent) (p=0.789), coping strategy (p=0.874) and physical self-care among tuberculosis patient.
