Central Australian Secondary Prevention of Acute Coronary Syndromes study (CASPA)
This Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute study aimed to assess the quality of care available to Indigenous people suffering acute coronary disease. The aim of the project was to identify:
- barriers to care
- weaknesses in service delivery
- targets in improving service delivery
- contributors to adverse outcomes of heart attacks among Indigenous Australians.
The program produced a number of research articles addressing the aforementioned aims.
