Our group studies the influence of psychosocial variables (age, sex, socioeconomic level, educational level, social support) and motivational processes (cognitive, affective and personality) on adherence to diet, life satisfaction and quality of life of patients with cardiovascular disease. We analyze the behavior of patients with cardiovascular disease from a social cognitive approach with the aim to design intervention programs based on the promotion of health through scientific evidence.
More specifically, we aim to validate a model of structural equations that will allow the determination of the weight and interaction of motivational variables in adherence to diet, quality of life and well-being of patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. Subsequently, we aim to test the effectiveness of an intervention program based on self-monitoring by the patients. One of our central research activities includes the development of a training program for the regulation of emotions for facing stressful events. This intervention program will provide the keys for patients to become familiar with self-regulation of emotions in stressful situations through e-HEALTH platforms.
Finally, we aim at extending our research activities to evaluate the relationship and impact of the proposed psychosocial and motivational variables with other biomedical variables collected from other IMIBIC teams (e.g. GC-09 Nutrigenomics, Metabolic Syndrome) and to widen our collaboration to several other research areas of IMIBIC. Our current collaborators include the Universidad degli Studi Roma La Sapienza (Italy), PAIDI CTS-525, The GC-09 Nutrigenomics, metabolic syndrome of IMIBIC, and the INDRHO research group (Investigación y Desarrollo de Recursos Humanos y Organizaciones, Grupo PAIDI HUM-568) of the University of Sevilla.
We propose to evaluate the relationship and impact of the proposed psychosocial and motivational variables with other biomedical variables resulting from and in collaboration with other IMIBIC research groups.
Our research on self-regulation includes the development of a training program that will provide different tools for patients to become familiar with the self-regulation of emotions in stressful situations. The training program and tools will be implemented through electronic HEALTH platforms.
We intend to validate a model of structural equations that allows us to determine the weight and interaction of motivational variables in adherence to diet, quality of life and well-being of patients with cardiovascular disease.
Within this new line of research, our aim is to study the relationship between emotional processing and greater affective well-being among the aging population.
