Coronary heart disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality among adults in Thailand. With the increase in chronic health problems, attention has been focused on encouraging individuals to engage in more health-promoting behaviors. Pender's (1996) Health Promotion Model was used as theoretical framework for this study which examined the relationships of perceived health status, social support, and health-promoting behaviors among adults with coronary heart disease. A sample of 149 men and women aged 35 to 78 were recruited from outpatient and heart clinics at Siriraj Hospital. Data were collected using a structured interview format which contained four instruments: demographic data sheet, the SF-36 Health Survey, the Personal Resource Questionnaire-Part II, and Health Promotion Activities. Results indicated that perceived health status (general health perception and physical functioning) and social support had positive correlations with health-promoting behaviors. Hierarchical multiple regression determined that perceived health status explained 20% of the variance in health-promoting behaviors. When social support was added to the model, the amount of variance explained increased to 33%. The findings of this study provided support for inclusion these variables in the Health Promotion Model.
