What we do
Recent advances in medical treatment for myocardial infarction (Heart Attack)have resulted in fewer patients dying in the acute stage of the illness. However, progress has been slower in improving functional recovery after MI. A large number of patients fail to return to work and normal functioning after myocardial infarction despite being physically well, and vocational disability remains one of the important negative consequences of MI. Furthermore,many patients do not attend rehabilitation programs after their MI even when such services are readily available and for those patients who do attend rehabilitation, a recent survey has found psychosocial issues are poorly addressed. Functional disability after MI is generally associated with higher levels of reported symptoms and lower levels of well-being. A recent follow-up study found only 44% of MI patients were free of chest pain symptoms after 4 years, and chest pain was associated with impaired quality of life and a failure to return to work.
