Introduction: Secondary prevention after acute myocardial infarction may include cardiac rehabilitation and lifestyle changes. Cardiac rehabilitation has mainly taken place in hospitals without coordination with primary healthcare. Motivational interviews have been shown to be effective as a means for change in patients after acute myocardial infarction. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a cardiac rehabilitation program with motivational interviews in patients discharged from hospital after acute myocardial infarction.

Methods: Randomized clinical non-pharmacological trial. A minimum sample of 284 participants requiring cardiac rehabilitation after acute myocardial infarction in six primary healthcare centers. Participants will be randomized to cardiac rehabilitation with motivational interviews or normal standard of care. All secondary results will be evaluated at 1,3 and 6 months.
