Sexual life and married life

Dimensions of sexual life and married life in men and women and partners suffering a first myocardial infarction (the SAMMI study group)

The overall aim was to define and compare how men and women who have suffered a myocardial infarction and their partners perceive their relationship as a couple, one year before and one year after a first myocardial infarction. This was carried out with consideration for the socio-demographic and medical data, knowledge of sexual activity, sexual function, satisfaction with the relationship, job satisfaction, coping, social support, quality of life and self-treatment.

This project has resulted in about 15 research articles where Marja-Leena Kristofferzon has been co-author in 5 of the articles.

Research period: 2007-2013.


Responsible: Professor Bengt Fridlund.
The SAMMI study group consisted of PhD students, PhDs and Associate Professors, including Marja-Leena Kristofferzon, University of Gävle
