Abstract

Comprehensive discharge planning may enhance dimensions of the quality of life (QoL) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Hence, the purpose of this study is to identify the correlation between perception of discharge planning and QoL among patients with CAD. A cross-sectional study was conducted using a self-administered questionnaire to 152 patients with CAD. The results from this study proved that majority of patients with CAD had a high level of QoL in the emotional domain (rho=-0.015, p=0.857) but low in the physical domain (rho=0.066, p=0.422) and social domain (rho=0.008, p=0.920).   

Keywords: discharge planning; quality of life; coronary artery disease.
