The purpose of this study was to identify the health beliefs and behaviors that influenced cardiovascular health in multigenerational families already at risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Guided by the Health Belief Model, this paper looks in depth at the concept of perceived susceptibility to CVD. Using a case study method, semi-structured individual and family group interviews were conducted of 3 members of 10 families (n=30) with known cardiovascular risk. Each family member represented a different generation. The index member was a senior or middle family member who had undergone coronary bypass surgery. A convenience sample was recruited from individuals having had coronary bypass surgery at a regional hospital in a rural area. A sub-sample of 6 subjects received individual interviews. Themes generated from the family interviews formed the basis for the individual interview questions. All interviews were audio taped, transcribed, and interviewer reflections were documented. Analysis consisted of coding, naming and categorizing data according to conceptual patterns. The findings reveal the perception of family members regarding perceived susceptibility to CVD and the influence it has on their health beliefs and behaviors. Opportunities are identified as to when family members may be open to change and what vehicles might influence family health behaviors that promote sustained change in cardiovascular health.
