Resultat Inga samband kunde påvisas mellan mängden sålda statiner och insjuknade eller dödlighet i akut hjärtinfarkt vid jämförelse mellan kommunerna. Resultaten antyder att andra preventiva åtgärder än ökad statinbehandling bör övervägas för att ytterligare minska sjukligheten i akut hjärtinfarkt. Slutsats

Patients try to live up to the standard of health care prescription and advices. However, these achievements require behavior change and conscious boundaries, which are challenged by various obstacles such as fear of, overstrain and stress. Physical activity is considered as both a source to well-being and a necessity, but patients are uncertain and afraid for overstraining. A healthy diet is seen as important but the advices given are sometimes contradictory and create confusion. Medication is found important but not at the cost of all the side-effects. Patients also report that in order to believe in their ability and to be responsible for self-care, support from health care providers is expected. But at the same time the invaluable support and information is often not provided, creating uncertainty.

Despite that risk, 1/5 of the patients continue to smoke, 1/3 is obese and more than half of the patients have elevated blood pressure and total cholesterol. Secondary preventive self-care activities are needed to improve outcomes and the belief of patients plays a vital role in changing behavior.Methods The study design was qualitative. Twenty-five patients, including 10 women, mean age 65 years with stable coronary artery disease participated in four focus group interviews. Data were taped, transcribed and analyzed according to the conventional content analysis. ” Self-care does not only mean to take care of yourself. You can not just exercise and eat healthy, you have to enjoy it as well” Sweden Aim To examine patients' beliefs of self-care 6-12 months after a coronary Number of participants25 individuals, 10 women and 15 men Mean age65,2 Married or cohabiting76 % Former smokers56 % Current smokers4 % Retired60 %
