Experimental: Distress management
The distress management program (cognitive behavioral therapy) alongside standard care
Behavioral: A cognitive behavior therapy distress management program targeting wellbeing in patients with atrial fibrillation and their relatives
Controls only delivery standard care. Experimental group deliver standard care plus a distress management program (cognitive behavioral therapy) performed in groups by a nurse, a pedagogue and a cardiologist (all trained in the distress management program).
No Intervention: Control
Controls only dilivery standard care
A randomized controlled design with pre- and 12 month posttest including persons living with atrial fibrillation and their relatives.
The distress management program (cognitive behavioral therapy) delivered in groups by a specialistnurse, a pedagogue and a cardiologist all trained in the distress management program. The program delivered to participants into three group- sessions extensive two hours each during a five weeks period 2011-2013.
Eligible participants were all consecutive identified when discharge after hospital care due to atrial fibrillation. The random process were managed by an open-label computer as block - randomization. Participants were enrolled and randomized during 2011-2013 into two arms; either to an experiment group to the distress management program or the control group. The trial, run alongside the standard care all of the participants received at a cardiology unit in a county hospital. The standard care was required to following actual guidelines.
