Persons with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) who have undergone percutaneous coronary intervention need to have appropriate health behaviors in order to prevent reoccurrence. The purpose of this study was to delineate the factors predicting health promotion behaviors among persons with CAD who had undergone percutaneous coronary intervention. Participants were 106 persons in the outpatient department of Maharat Nakhonratchasima Hospital, selected by purposive sampling.  The research instruments consisted of a 1) Demographic Data Recording Form, 2) Health-Promoting Behaviors Questionnaire, 3) Perceived Benefits of Health Promoting Behaviors Questionnaire, 4) Perceived Barriers of Health Promoting Behaviors Questionnaire, 5) Perceived Self-efficacy Questionnaire, and 6) Social Support Questionnaire. The content validity and reliability of the research instruments were tested. Data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics and stepwise multiple regression.

The study results demonstrated that: perceived self-efficacy, perceived barriers of health promoting behaviors, perceived benefits of health-promoting behaviors, and social support together accounted for 57.20% of health promoting behaviors among persons with CAD who had undergone percutaneous coronary intervention (p < .001)

The results of this study could be used to enhance health-promoting behaviors among persons with coronary artery disease who have undergone percutaneous coronary intervention.
