Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Understanding how patients experience recovery from acute coronary syndrome is critical for improving continuity of care. Continuity of care from hospital to home can be particularly challenging. This review aims to provide an overview of patients’ experiences of recovery from ACS. Data sources used keyword search of Medline, CINAHL plus, Scopus, Science Direct and Proquest databases. The inclusion criteria were conducted with adult population, qualitative research and articles published in English language in 2008-2018. This review used Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines. The samples of 21 qualitative articles were included. Discharge planning and systematic follow-up shortly after discharge are increasingly viewed as being important. Patients need adequate instruction and information on how to integrate health information. Further research is needed to improve intervention strategy among people suffering from ACS, especially in developing countries.
