The present study was done to assess the relationship between coping strategies and the development of post-traumatic stress disorder among patients after an acute MI, with selected socio demographic and clinical variables. The sample consisted of 100 post-acute myocardial infarction patients selected by convenience sampling technique. The design used was correlational design with quantitative approach. Structured Questionnaire on socio demographic data and clinical variables were used to assess the sample characteristics whereas the post-traumatic stress disorder and coping strategies were assessed using Modified UKPTSS 14 scale and brief COPE Scale respectively. The findings of the study were that, 42% were using emotion focused coping skills, 11% were not using problem focused coping skills effectively and 74% of the samples used dysfunctional coping skills effectively. The study findings also revealed that more than half (63%) of samples with acute post MI had no PTSD, and only 10% had PTSD symptomology. The study revealed thatthere is moderate negative correlation between post-traumatic stress disorder and emotion focused coping strategies (r = -0.385), weak negative correlation between post-traumatic stress disorder and problem focused coping strategies (r = -0.204) and there is weak positive correlation between post-traumatic stress disorder and dysfunctional coping strategies (r = 0.280). The study also proved that there was a significant association between post-traumatic stress disorder and selected sociodemographic and clinical variables like no. of days of hospitalization [10.413 (p = 0.036. The present study concluded that use of emotion focused and problem focused coping strategies can prevent the development of post-traumatic stress disorder among patients after an acute myocardial infarction.
