[Research Presentation]Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the gender differences in post CABG patients in Taiwan. Methods: Cross-sectional survey research design and purposive sampling were used in this study, for which 50 males and 50 females were recruited from a medical center in northern Taiwan. Results: Both male and female post-CABG patients used more problem-focused coping strategies than emotion-focused coping strategies. In comparison to men, women tended to use more blaming of self and had slightly higher scores on both state and trait anxiety. Conclusion: The results suggest that clinicians need to be aware that the use of appropriate coping strategies can reduce patient anxiety, a finding that needs to be considered when designing effective interventions for these patients.
