Abstract

The relationships between various indicators of (1) subjective perception of clinic environment, (2) subjective state of health and perceived health changes during rehabilitation, (3) clinical ratings (physician's ratings of health status and its changes), (4) medical-diagnostic laboratory data, and (5) patient history, were studied in a sample of 144 myocardial infarction patients who participated in a four- to six-week early rehabilitation programme. Canonical correlation analyses point to intricate, statistically significant interrelationships among subjective perceptions of treatment environment and subjective health status changes, physician's ratings and laboratory findings, as well as subjective perceptions of treatment environment and patient history. All other combinations of variables did not reveal statistically significant canonical correlations. The findings show that subjective perception of the treatment environment is an important psychosocial variable relevant to subjective well-being of myocardial infarction patients and their subjective recovery during rehabilitation.
