Abstract

Recent intervention studies have attempted to address cardiac rehabilitation patients' illness beliefs to improve care. Their findings were mainly limited to short-term behaviour changes such as return to work or attendance on rehabilitation programmes. Evidence about what aspects of the patients' illness beliefs influence long-term quality of life in cardiac rehabilitation remains sparse.
