  Purpose

In this study the investigators aim at comparing the effect on quality of life and the cost-effectiveness of a structuralised sick-leave program compared to usual care sick leave management in patients after an acute non ST myocardial infarction(NSTEMI).The investigators hypothesize that a structuralised sick-leave program after an acute NSTEMI is cost-effective without a negative effect on quality of life compared to usual care management in this patient group.

Further study details as provided by Oslo University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cost effectiveness [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    In order to evaluate resource use (costs) all patients will be asked to fill in a questionnaire at baseline and after 6 and 12 months. Total costs and mean costs will be calculated in the two different follow-up modalities.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of Life measures are estimated at baseline and after 6 and 12 months using the standard Medical Outcomes Study Short form( SF-36)questionnaire and the disease-specific Utility-Based Quality of life-Heart questionnaire(UBQ-H). [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 120
Study Start Date: January 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Group 1: Usual care sick-leave management Other: Usual care sick-leave management
Patients randomized to usual care. Follow up after discharge by general practitioner (GP) according to local practice.
Group 2: Structuralised sick-leave program Other: Structuralised sick-leave program
Patients randomized to the structuralized program will get full time sick-leave for 2 weeks after discharge.Cardiologist will be responsible for individual adaption of each patient`s sick-leave and follow-up.
