risk of a subsequent MI within the first year of the initial MI. 2)Describe the research design of the study (i.e., state whether the study is correlational, experimental, etc. and define the variables).A quantitative experimental pretest post test design is proposed for this study.Quantitative data will be developed using a pre/post analysis of the SF-36 questionnaire. The study variables include patients who Page 7 of 16

Provide the approximateduration of subject participation for each procedure/ instrument and the frequency and settingof each administration. Identify any personnel who will assist with data collection. ***You must submit a copy of each study instrument, including all questionnaires, surveys,protocols for interviews, etc.***If someone will be assisting with data collection, but is not indicated as a co-investigator orresearch assistant in this application (i.e. they will be accessing archival data for you) you mustsubmit a letter of approval indicating that they are willing and capable to assist.The researcher will reach out to the participants individually via telephone. The participant will be given a date to complete the SF-36 Survey. For the Pretest, SF 36 scores will be processed for each survey individually and then all surveys scores will be summed and averaged. This process will be repeated at the end of the study for the Posttest. The survey should take no more than 10 to 20 minutes to complete each time. Scores of the pre and post-test will be subjected to statistical analysis to determine if scores after participation in cardiac rehab reflects a greater quality of life and overall general health status. Please see attached SF-36 Questionnaire.4)Describe the recruitment procedures. Explain who will approach potential participants and take part in the research study and what will be done to protect the individual’s privacy in thisprocess.***You must submita copy of any material used to recruit subjects (e.g., informed consent forms, advertisement, flyers, telephone scripts, verbal recruitment scripts, cover letters, etc.) The prospective participants will be contacted by the PI and unless a consent is signed by the participant, no information will be collected. Please see Informed consent attached. All information will be password protected and stored electronic only. Only those directly involved in study will have access to any information. The PI will be the only one that has access to the survey results.
