- Patient Determinants of Appropriate ICD Utilization [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Specifically, we will assess patients for knowledge deficits regarding the clinical effects of ICD therapy. We will assess patients for their opinions regarding their risk of death, and whether they are willing to trade time to avoid discomfort of their illness or ICD shocks. We will ask patients about their thoughts about financial concerns regarding ICD therapy and their trust in technology, their physician and the medical system. We will also ask patients about their opinions regarding cosmetic issues created by ICD placement.
- Physician Determinants of Appropriate ICD Utilization [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Measure physician knowledge and attitudes regarding defibrillator therapy for the physicians providing care to the patients in the study and assess the relationship between these measures and appropriate defibrillator utilization. We will assess physicians understanding of ICD clinical effects, costs, and risks of complications.
