History: No changes posted
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a pre-discharge videotape introducing the concept and benefit of a Cardiac Rehabiliation & Secondary Prevention (CRSP) program will increase intent to participate in a CRSP program in post myocardial infarction, unstable angina, coronary artery bypass surgery, or coronary angioplasty patients.

Condition Intervention Phase
Myocardial Infarction Unstable Angina Coronary Angioplasty Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery Behavioral: Survey Behavioral: Survey and videotape Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single
Primary Purpose: Educational/Counseling/Training
Official Title: Evaluation of an Introductory Videotape Intervention to Improve Cardiac Rehabilitation Participation, the CR$P-2 Pilot Study.

Further study details as provided by Lawson Health Research Institute:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Expressed intent to participate in a CRSP program.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients who continue to adhere to the 6-month CRSP program beyond the initial expressed intent to participate.
  • Impact of other patient variables and how they influence participation in a CRSP program.

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: June 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2005
Detailed Description:
There is compelling evidence that a comprehensive CR program comprising the delivery of lifestyle modifying education will reduce mortality, morbidity and improve quality of life in patients following myocardial infarction, unstable angina, angioplasty or coronary artery bypass. However less than 20% of eligible patients participate in CRSP programs. This study will look at a method of potentially improving enrollment and adherence to a CRSP program. Patients will be randomized into two groups. One group will complete a survey and view a videotape introducing the concept of a CRSP program. The second group will be requested to complete a survey only, but will not be exposed to the videotape. It is expected that the patients who view the videotape will be more likely to express intent to participate in CRSP versus those patients who do not view the videotape.
