Nurses’ perspectives on nurse-coordinated prevention programmes in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease: a pilot survey

Nurses’ perspectives on nurse-coordinated prevention programmes in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease: a pilot survey

Samenvatting

BACKGROUND: Secondary prevention of coronary artery disease (CAD) is increasingly provided by nurse-coordinated prevention programs (NCPP). Little is known about nurses' perspectives on these programs. AIM: To investigate nurses' perspectives/experiences in NCPPs in acute coronary syndrome patients. METHODS: Thirteen nurses from NCPPs in 11 medical centers in the RESPONSE trial completed an online survey containing 45 items evaluating 3 outcome categories: (1) conducting NCPP visits; (2) effects of NCPP interventions on risk profiles and (3) process of care. RESULTS: Nurses felt confident in counseling/motivating patients to reduce CAD risk. Interventions targeting LDL, blood pressure and medication adherence were reported as successful, corresponding with significant improvements of these risk factors. Improving weight, smoking and physical activity was reported as less effective. Screening for anxiety/depression was suggested as an improvement. CONCLUSIONS: Nurses acknowledge the importance and effectiveness of NCPPs, and correctly identify which components of the program are the most successful. Our study provides a basis for implementation and quality improvement for NCCPs.
