Abstract The effect of a pre-coronary angioplasty education and counselling program on knowledge and psychological status of patients and on knowledge and quality of life/coping status of their spouses was evaluated. Forty patients and their spouses participated in a pre-coronary angioplasty education and counselling program and 40 served as controls. Knowledge, psychological status and quality of life/coping status were assessed prior to coronary angioplasty and at a mean of four and 11 months post-coronary angioplasty. At four months, improved knowledge and reduced anxiety were found for patients in the experimental group. At 11 months, spouses in the experimental group showed continued improvement in quality of life compared to those in the control group. It was concluded that pre-coronary angioplasty education and counselling can impact favourably upon knowledge in patients and quality of life in spouses.
