Abstract

Background and Aim: Secondary prevention after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) has proved to be effective in patients with coronary heart disease, and is strongly recommended by the international guidelines. However, there is a lack of widespread secondary preventive programmes in real-world clinical practice, even though it has been shown that these can be successfully conducted by nurses. Method and Results: We have designed a multicentre randomised trial involving patients with ACS in which nurses will fully coordinate secondary prevention in the intervention arm using a multidimensional nursing form after attending ad hoc teaching sessions.
