Background. Patients with coronary artery disease are at high risk of coronary events and death, but effective secondary prevention can reduce this risk. There is a gap between guidelines on secondary prevention and the implementation of these measures, which could potentially be reduced by nurse led prevention clinics (NLPC).
Objectives. The aim of the current study is to quantify the impact of NLPC on the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with established coronary artery disease.
Methods. A randomised, multicentre clinical trial of NLPC in addition to usual care or usual care alone in post-acute coronary syndrome patients. (Neth Heart J 2009;17:322–8.)
