Efectividad de una intervención educativa en estilos de vida saludables, en el conocimiento y comportamiento en pacientes post-rehabilitación cardiaca


Target: To evaluate the effectiveness of the educational intervention in life styles, in the knowledge and changes in behavior in patients with post-rehabilitation heart disease; Methodology: The investigation is a quantitative experimental study before and after without a control group, with a sample of 20 subjects in phase IV that had finished III phase of rehabilitation, an educational intervention was realized and a previous and a later one measurement of results was applied with monthly evaluation. Results: it was found that p <0.05 for change in the behavior and knowledge, being in behavior of habits of healthy life p 0.0001 to one month after the intervention and in the knowledge p 0.002 immediately after realized; being statistically significant. Conclusion: An educational intervention about the risk factors of heart disease and protective behaviors related to habits of healthy life might increase the knowledge and to change behavior into patients with heart disease in phase IV or that have finished Phase III of cardiac rehabilitation.
