Background: The number of individuals undergoing the coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG) procedure is increasing in Taiwan, but lack of research focused on Taiwanese CABG population. Recovery from CABG is a stressful event and requires coping strategies to obtain adaptation. Anxiety is a common concern post-the surgery and an emotion response from stress appraisal. Quality of life is a good indicator to evaluate adaptation outcome following the CABG. The results of health surveys indicate a correlation between anxiety, coping, and quality of life. This correlation is the foundation upon which to identify the relevant factors and to establish an appropriate intervention to obtain a better adaptation outcome. In addition, the number of women having CABG is increasing and they experienced different outcomes after the surgery, compare to men. However, lack of research has been conducted on the relationships and gender differences between anxiety, coping, and quality of life in Taiwan. Purpose: Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between anxiety, coping, and quality of life in both male and female Taiwanese patients following CABG. Method: This study uses a cross-sectional, descriptive, and correlational design. Four instruments will be used in this study including Revised Ways of Coping Checklist (RWCC) ,State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), Medical Outcomes Thrust Short Form 36-Health Survey (SF-36), and demographic questionnaire. A hundred convenient samples will be recruited and all attempts will be made to have an equal number of men and women. Descriptive statistic, ANOVA, MANOVA, and multiple regression will be used to analysis the data. Implication: Information from this study will be important to Taiwanese post CABG patients and may be used to design further nursing interventions to promote coping ability, reduce the level of anxiety and enhance quality of life for post-CABG patients.
