Bibliotherapy on coping with illness improves health literacy but not heart-related anxiety of patients in cardiological rehabilitation

Muschalla, Beate ORCID; Glatz, Johannes; Linden, Michael GND

Information of patients about their illness is necessary for patient empowerment and coping with illness. This can be done by written material, i.e. bibliotherapy [1-6]. Scientific data suggest that bibliotherapy can help patients to better understand their illness, improve their health behaviour, and reduce anxiety [2, 3, 7]. The objective of the present study is to investigate in a randomized controlled trial the effects of bibliotherapy on illness-related knowledge, i.e. health literacy, and on heart-related anxiety in cardiology patients.
