Recovery from Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection
  Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is increasingly recognised as an important cause of myocardial infarction (MI). Despite this, there are no recovery programmes tailored for SCAD survivors, who are mainly female, and typically younger than Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) Survivors. Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) is a nurse-led intervention to improve recovery from cardiac events, but the participants are mostly male and aged in the mid-60s. The structure of CR programmes means that SCAD survivors do not receive tailored, age or gender appropriate support, nor is the advice relevant to SCAD. Consequently, there is an urgent need to develop and evaluate SCAD recovery programmes. The overall objective of this project is to design a safe and effective recovery programme for SCAD survivors that can be quickly scaled to be offered to all survivors of SCAD in the UK.
