Mechanisms of Social Inequalities in Post-hospitalization Rehabilitation in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||acute coronary syndrome|
|Start date||March 2015|
|End date||August 2016|
|Trial size||310 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02360189, ACS-12345|
Aim: To identify psychological and socioeconomic predictors of cardiac-rehabilitation (CR) attendance and uncover mechanisms of CR non-attendance.
Design: Quantitative, observational, prospective study. Hypothesis a: Educational-level, comorbidity, anxiety, depression, self-efficacy, cohabitation and distance from residence are predictors of CR attendance.
Hypothesis b: The expected social gradient in CR attendance is explained partly by differential exposure of comorbidity, anxiety, depression, self-efficacy, cohabitation and distance to the rehabilitation clinic.
