Psychological Treatment of Cardiac Patients

Robert Allan, PhD

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States and worldwide. Psychosocial factors affect both the onset and outcome of CHD. Psychologists are in a unique position to have an impact on CHD patients’ quality of life, disease progression, and perhaps even mortality. This article describes the process and issues encountered in such treatment.
