 The present study was conducted to investigate the role of meaning in life and time perspective in predicting treatment adherence of cardiovascular patients with a history of angiography. The research design is descriptive. The population included all cardiovascular patients with a history of angiography referred to Shahid Chamran Cardiac Hospital of Isfahan in 1402. The sample included 169 patients with a history of angiography who were selected purposefully. For collecting data, questionnaires about treatment adherence Seyed Fatemi et al (2017), time perspective Zimbardo and Boyd's (1999), meaning in life Steger et al (2006) were used. The results showed that dimensions of meaning in life and dimensions of time perspective have a significant relationship with adherence. The results of the hierarchical multiple regression analysis showed that the dimensions of meaning in life explain 46% of the variance of treatment adherence. These findings show that treatment adherence is influenced by meaning in life and time perspective. Therefore, it is possible to develop educational programs based on meaning in life and to adjust the time perspective to increase treatment adherence of cardiovascular patients who have been diagnosed at risk using an angiography diagnostic test to prevent the worsening of the disease through secondary prevention.
