SMARTPHONE BASED SECONDARY PREVENTION PROGRAM FOR PATIENTS WITH ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROMES: A RANDOMISED CONTROL TRIAL
Grant number: 1115163 | Funding period: 2016 - 2018
Patients at the highest risk of premature death, heart attacks and re-hospitalization are those with known coronary heart disease. Secondary prevention strategies and cardiac rehabilitation are under-utilised in clinical practice. We aim to close this treatment gap by establishing the role of a smartphone based secondary prevention program in patients who have experienced a heart attack. Our innovative model of care may empower patients to optimise their cardiac health.
