Sixty six patients with myocardial infarction hospitalized in a CCU in a hospital in Qom city were recruited by convenience sampling considering the inclusion criteria and were randomly assigned to three equal groups of face-to-face, pamphlet and CD-ROM training methods. Data were collected by Spielberg State-anxiety inventory. State anxiety was measured and compared in three groups before and after intervention. Data were analyzed by SPSS-PC (v.11.5).
