Abstract

This thesis aimed to explore the use of the Common Sense Model (Levanthal, 1980) in cardiovascular populations. The literature review critically evaluates the application of clinical interventions developed using the Common Sense Model (CSM), in a cardiovascular disease population. The research report used a cross-sectional design to investigate the relationship between illness representations using the CSM, coping, and psychological and functional outcomes in a post-stroke population.
