    Abstract

    Background: Patients with coronary artery disease are at high risk of coronary events and death, but effective secondary prevention can reduce this risk. There is a gap between guidelines on secondary prevention and the implementation of these measures, which could potentially be reduced by nurse led prevention clinics (NLPC).

    Objectives: The aim of the current study is to quantify the impact of NLPC on the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with established coronary artery disease.

    Methods: A randomised, multicentre clinical trial of NLPC in addition to usual care or usual care alone in post-acute coronary syndrome patients.
