NASCIMENTO, Natan Pinto do; DIAS, Gabriela Woll; DAROIT, Luciane  e  BENINCA, Ciomara Ribeiro Silva. Evaluation of type D personality and ilness perception in patientes with coronary artery disease. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.2, pp. 67-82. ISSN 2177-093X.

Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death in Brazil, multiple factors are related to the etiology of this condition, including those of psychological origin, such as Type D Personality, that seems to predispose subjects to a chronic stress state that would increase the risk of developing CVDs. Another factor with influence in the disease is the way individuals perceive their health status, being this perception responsible for the way they create devices to deal with their condition. In this sense, the objective of the present study was to evaluate, using Brief IPQ and DS-14 Scale, the relationship between the perception of disease and the prevalence of Type D Personality in 80 patients with CAD during hospitalization. It can be observed that, although no statistical correlations were found between the variables, subjects with TDP tend to perceive greater severity in their disease. We also found low levels of understanding and the temporality of the disease. The role of psychoeducational strategies is highlighted.
