  Purpose
The objective is to investigate whether in acute coronary syndrome patients the cardiac risk profile will improve with 2 new extended cardiac rehabilitation interventions and if these patients maintain healthier life style habits and a more active life style compared to patients randomized to standard cardiac rehabilitation.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of the SCORE Risk Score [ Time Frame: 6 months after the intervention ]
    Healthy lifestyle is quantified by the SCORE Risk Score (7). Apart from age, sex, the SCORE includes the modifiable risk factors total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, systolic blood pressure and smoking status.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • improved physical fitness [ Time Frame: 6 months after the intervention ]

    increased level of everyday physical activity, reduction of health care consumption in the intervention groups and improved cost-effectiveness in the intervention groups.

    Earlier return to work and improved social participation, improved physical fitness, improved quality of life and less anxiety and depression. On the long-term, patients will be followed up for adverse clinical outcome, defined as mortality and major adverse cardiac events,

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: OPTICARE-A
Starts 2 weeks after ending standard cardiac rehabilitation (CR) and is based on five phonebased coaching sessions at 6 weeks intervals up to 6 months. Each coaching session includes 5 stages: (1) Asking questions to establish patient's knowledge, attitude and beliefs about their risk factors; (2) Explanation and rationale; (3) Assertiveness training; (4) Goal setting; (5) Reassessment.
Other: rehabilitation+telephonic coaching

Other Name: cardiac rehabilitation
Active Comparator: OPTICARE-B
Standard CR according to the guidelines consisting of (a) 2 times a week exercise program of 1.5 hours during 12 weeks, (b) upon request of the patient: participation in multifactorial lifestyle and risk factor sessions (medical information, dietary advises and emotional advises, information about risk factors, smoking cessation program and stress management sessions)
Other: OPTICARE-B
standard CR according to the guidelines consisting of (a) 2 times a week exercise program of 1.5 hours during 12 weeks, (b) upon request of the patient: participation in multifactorial lifestyle and risk factor sessions (medical information, dietary advises and emotional advises, information about risk factors, smoking cessation program and stress management sessions).
Other Name: cardiac rehabilitation
Experimental: OPTICARE-C
(a) standard CR consisting of 2 times a week exercise program of 1.5 hours during 12 weeks. (b) (mandatory) participation in multifactorial lifestyle and risk factor sessions: i.e. 4 sessions of 2 hours each (medical information, dietary advises, risk factors and emotional advises). If applicable, patients will participate in smoking cessation, dietary and stress management programs . (c) Individual sessions and a personalized home-based program to promote an active life style upon instruction of a physiotherapist and physical activity counselor during and after completion of rehabilitation. Activity monitors will be used to provide feedback. (d) Additional compulsory supervised multifactorial lifestyle and risk management training sessions of each 2 hours provided at 4, 6 and 12 months.
