    Abstract:
    Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a condition with significant psychologic and social, as well as physical, consequences. As such, psychologic assessment is an important component of any cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program. A multidimensional framework is proposed, with particular emphasis on five psychosocial domains: Personality function and psychopathology, neuropsychologic function, physical health status, stress and type A behavior, and social and work adjustment. The results of the psychologic assessment should emphasize the relative strengths and adaptive resources of the patient, as well as problem areas. Efforts should also be made to integrate psychologic test results with evaluations from other disciplines within the CR team so that a coordinated treatment program can be formulated. © 1985 The American Burn Association.
