Official Title Not Provided
Brief Summary

To demonstrate the effectiveness of the ELIPS programme (Multi-dimEnsionaL preventIon Program after Acute coronary Syndrome), which aims at improving quality of care of patients admitted to hospital with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) in the Swiss setting. The program targets an increase in prescription rates by physicians and long term medication adherence and adoption of healthy lifestyle attitudes by patients.

The program is dedicated to caregivers to increase their application of guidelines into practice, to increase their confidence in therapeutic education of patients, and to patients to improve their understanding of ACS and its treatment and to increase their motivation for long term treatment,.
