A health education and counselling programme was offered to myocardial infarction patients during and after hospitalization.
A randomized pre-test-post-test control group design was used to evaluate the effects of the experimental intervention.
During hospitalization the intervention consisted of two individual counselling sessions and two group health education sessions focusing on medication, healthy habits, anxiety and depression.
On completion of these sessions, weekly telephone calls were made to patients for a period of six weeks after discharge from hospital.
The intervention was offered to 30 myocardial infarction patients and their partners (the experimental group) in addition to standard medical care.
