BACKGROUND Survivors of an acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) remain at high risk for future cardiac events. Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) participation significantly reduces coronary artery disease (CAD) morbidity and mortality risk. Regrettably, poor utilization of CR services post STEMI is common, accentuating a critical action gap in the trajectory of CAD management. The objective of this study was to determine whether integration of an early cardiac access clinic (ECAC), held… CONTINUE READING
