Objectives: This research was conducted with the aim of explaining the dysfunctional attitudes of hospitalized cardiovascular patients through dysfunctional metacognitive beliefs.
Methods & Materials: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Shariati Hospital in Isfahan, Iran, in 2012. The statistical population was the hospitalized cardiovascular patients of Shariati Hospital in Isfahan. Out of them, 87 patients were selected using simple random sampling method. Research instruments were the dysfunctional metacognitive beliefs questionnaire (Cartwright-Hatton and Wells) and dysfunctional attitudes scale (Wiseman and Beck). Data were analyzed using SPSS version 18 through performing multiple regression analysis and the Pearson correlation coefficient.
Results: The results of regression analysis revealed that “need to control thoughts” has significant predictive power for the “others’ satisfaction” (P<0.05); positive beliefs about “worry” and “worry uncontrollability” have significant predictive power for the “concentration on self” (P<0.05); positive beliefs about worry have significant predictive power for the “perfectionism” (P<0.01); “worry uncontrollability” and “cognitive confidence” have significant predictive power for the “need for others’ confirmation” (P<0.01); and positive beliefs about “worry” have significant predictive power for the “concentration on success” (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Findings of this research revealed that dysfunctional metacognitive beliefs have predictive power for dysfunctional attitudes, which may affect health of cardiovascular patients.
