The purpose of this study was to identify the health beliefs and behaviors that influenced cardiovascular health in multigerational families already at risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Guided by the Health Belief Model, this study provides insights into how these family members reinforce each others beliefs and behaviors. 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. A convenience sample was recruited from individuals having had coronary bypass surgery at a regional hospital in a rural area. Prior to group family interviews, each subject completed a Behavior Risk Questionnaire to determine high or low risk of CVD. A sub-sample of 6 subjects received individual interviews. A subject with high CVD risk and one with low CVD risk represented each generation. The findings reveal family member's perceptions of health, personal and family cardiovascular risk, and shared family experiences that influence health 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.
