Background and Purpose: One of the important factors affecting the life quality of every person is the disease, where one of the main interventions in this regard can be the individual counseling which is one of the most appropriate procedures in improving the life quality in chronic diseases such as myocardial infarction. Therefore, the present study was cnducted to investigate the effect of individual counselling on the quality of life in patients with myocardial infarction.
Methods and Materials: This quasi-experimental study was conducted on 56 patients with myocardial infarction at Vase’i Hospital in Sabzevar, Iran, who were selected through convenience sampling; they were divided randomaly into two groups: thew intervention and the control groups, and were homogenized as for their age, gender, level of education and history of myocardial infarction. The intervention group received four one-hour counselling sections every other day in physical, mental and social domains. However, there was no intervention for the control group. The quality of life of the two groups was surveyed and compared by QOL-SF36 questionnaire after a one-month period. The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS 11.5 using chi-squre and independent samples t-test.

Chi-square results indicated that despite differences in physical, mental and social domains, the deffierence was significant only in the mental dere not significantly different (p=0.99).
