The purpose of this final project is first, to provide a broad understanding of cardiovascular disease as a dynamic condition that responds to the physical environment of the human body and to the psychosocial factors that surround the affected individual. This broad understanding includes a contemporary definition and a multidimensional view of health and illness. Secondly, the paper evaluates current cardiac rehabilitation models, discussing the need to reorient these programs to comprehensively treat patients. Finally, this project presents a rehabilitation program based on self-efficacy theory with the goal to implement this model to cardiac rehabilitation programs in Ecuador.
