La Psicocardiología es el área de la Psicología de la Salud que detecta e interviene sobre los diversos factores psicosociales de riesgo coronario que desarrollan la enfermedad y obstaculizan su rehabilitación. Reúne varias disciplinas, en particular cardiología y psicología, trabajando conjuntamente tanto en la prevención primaria como en la rehabilitación de la coronariopatía. Es hoy un enfoque interdisciplinario de la enfermedad coronaria. Ha surgido del contacto cotidiano con el paciente coronario, de ver como él está pobremente informado de las characterísticas de la enfermedad; de sus causas, de cómo prevenirla; de cómo encarar su tratamiento y de lo imprescindible de su rehabilitación. En este artículo se tratan los factores psicológicos de la enfermedad coronaria, los aspectos sociales de la salud coronaria, y la terapia psicocardiológica en la rehabilitación coronaria.
