The researchers interviewed 40 women 6 to 24 months after their first myocardial infarction to determine facilitators and barriers to making desired health behavioral changes. Nurses at the bedside are in a unique position to discuss the importance of attending cardiac rehabilitation with women after myocardial infarction, assist them to assess their individualized barriers and facilitators to attending, and help them develop strategies to overcome barriers to promote attendance.
