Abstract

In patients who have survived an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), optimal secondary prevention is crucial to minimise morbidity and mortality. Although secondary prevention starts during the index hospital admission, GPS have a key role in ensuring it is instituted and maintained, and in supporting patients so that they have the best chance of long-Term survival.
