Title: The Impacts of Coronary Heart Disease on Quality of Life: A Meta-analytic Comparison with Control Groups
Author: Le, Jana
Issue Date: 2017
School/Discipline: School of Psychology
Abstract: Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, with significant physical, psychological and social impacts. Medical advances have seen increasing numbers of adults surviving and living with CHD. Reducing disease burden by improving quality of life (QOL) has, therefore, become of increasing importance. QOL for those with CHD is best encapsulated by a biopsychosocial framework such as the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). This review will map QOL components in the CHD population against the ICF, in order to inform rehabilitation processes and identify areas for future research.
