This paper, part 2 of the two-part paper, reviews return-to-work outcomes among individuals with coronary heart disease, who participated in an experimental field study reported in part 1 of the two-part paper. Study results reflected specific job stressors associated with physical and mental demands among various job tasks. Trends suggest that personality characteristics commonly associated with ' type a' personalities and cardiac disease risk factors may also serve as positive forces that influence return-to-work activity.
Relatively high levels of job satisfaction were reported among most experimental subjects. Despite having high return-to-work expectations, these patients lacked specific strategies and resources to facilitate a concrete return to work action plan.
The researchers conclude that it is essential for cardiac rehabilitation staff, when creating a return to work transition for their cardiac patients, to explore the physical and psychosocial dimensions of jobs, the receptivity of the employer, and the accommodations needed to promote a safe and timely return to work.
