Abstract: Treatment post-MI is best suited when tailored to the individual’s needs (Williams, 2001). This study was conducted as an exploratory analysis of patients’ preferences for behavioral and lifestyle treatment options after a myocardial infarction (MI). Specifically, whether there were differences in men’s and women’s preferences for treatment. There were no significant differences in men’s and women’s preferences for treatment, although women tended to rate their preferences the same or lower then the men for each treatment option. By looking at patients’ preferences across various demographic variables, this exploratory analysis can assist physicians when explaining and offering treatment options to their patients’ post-MI.
