The aim of this study was to analyze possible existing correlations among the three dimensions of the sense of coherence (SOC), as a psychosocial risk factor, and some other cardiovascular risk factors in a group of primary care patients. Seventy-one persons at high cardiovascular risk were identified by their general practitioners and invited to answer the 13 questions included in the Antonovsky's SOC questionnaire. Psychosocial risk evaluation, performed with SOC analysis, may provide an important added value in the identification of behavioral changes and cardiovascular risk reduction.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to analyze possible existing correlations among the three dimensions of the sense of coherence (SOC), as a psychosocial risk factor, and some other cardiovascular risk factors in a group of primary care patients. Seventy-one persons at high cardiovascular risk were identified by their general practitioners and invited to answer the 13 questions included in the Antonovsky's SOC questionnaire. Psychosocial risk evaluation, performed with SOC analysis, may provide an important added value in the identification of behavioral changes and cardiovascular risk reduction.
