This study was designed to determine the roles most salient for individuals following a myocardial infarction (MI) and identify relationships among worker demographics, depression, illness intrusion, role identity, and self-esteem. Thirty participants 18 years or older, paid employees working 20 or more hours per week immediately prior to the MI, receiving care at one of the identified clinics, able to read English, and having a diagnosis of an acute MI within the past year completed questionnaires regarding role identity, illness intrusion, self-esteem, and depression. The results demonstrated the work role was significant for individuals after an MI. In addition, participants felt their current occupation had much to do with how they felt about themselves. The correlation between being employed now and an individual's occupation supported the finding that workers value their work role.
