Abstract [nl]

Problems and information needs of patients six months after myocardial infarction or after coronary artery bypass surgery were assessed in this study. The theoretical framework was provided by the theory of Orem (1991). Data on problems experienced and need for more or other information were collected by semi-structured interviews. Results show that almost all (81) of the 82 patiënts did experience problems the first six months after discharge. Most (60) of the 82 patients stated they had needed more or other information concerning one or more topics. Most information was needed concerning: knowledge of the disease, convalescence, tiredness, risk factors, medication, emotional reactions en deleterious effects of treatment. The relationship between problems, information needs, health condition and character of the topic (affective or cognitive) was also examined.
