Introduction: According to increase of CABGs in society, importance of post-operative complications and quality of life is considered more than past. The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect of continuous care model on the quality of life and prevention of post-operative complications in CABG's patients. Methods: in a quasi-experimental study, seventy patients that were undergone the CABGs selected based on purposive sampling and were randomly assigned to intervention and control groups. in the intervention group patients received continuous care model for two months but the control group received routine care only. data gathering was conducted using mac new health related quality of life questionnaire in three times (before, one and two months after surgery) and checklist of post-operative complication one and two months after surgery in both groups. Statistical methods of independent t-test, repeated measurement ANOVA and post hoc tukey tests were used. Results: The results showed that implementation of continuous care model in intervention group resulted a significant difference between two groups on mean scores of quality of life and the complications (p< 0/001) The mean and standard deviation of quality of life scores in the intervention group before surgery, one and two months after surgery were 150/1±24/4, 189/3±12/1, 180/5±16/1 respectively and the mean and standard deviation of quality of life scores in the control group were 139/2±24/7, 166/5±21/3, 168/2±10/4 with no significant difference (p> 0/001). in addition the percentage of postoperative complications in the intervention and control groups after one month were %40 and %85 respectively and this difference also interpreted as statistically significant (P<0.001) Conclusion: Results of this study revealed that the continuous care model from aspects of quality of life and post-operative complications has positive effects on CABG's patients. Therefore, it is recommended that this model should be used more extensively on these patients.
