Acute myocardial infarction: a comparison of short-term survival in national outcome registries in Sweden and the UK
The Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP), from which the data for the Lancet paper was obtained, continues to collect detailed information about the care provided to patients with heart attack. This demonstrates the commitment of participating clinicians, Trusts and governments to improvements in quality of care. While important improvements have been made since 2010, the end of the period studied by the researchers, there is no room for complacency. We need to continue emphasising both the provision of the best modern care, and the recording of that care.

NICOR patient and public day 2014
4 February 2014
NICOR (The National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research) collects anonymised patient information from across UK hospitals to try and improve the quality of care and outcomes for patients that have heart problems and treatments. These include adult heart surgery, heart attack, heart procedures, heart devices (for example pacemakers), heart failure and congenital heart surgery.
NICOR publishes reports every year from each of these areas and wants to ensure that it is providing information to patients in a meaningful and accessible way that is useful to them and their families. The NICOR team wants your help to improve the information it provides for patients and the public and this is the reason they want you to join them at their Patient and Public Open Day on the 8th of May.
The Open Day will allow you to find out what NICOR do and how you can get involved in their work. The Patient and Public Open Day will be a great opportunity to meet the NICOR team and for us to hear your views and experiences. The NICOR team wants patients and carers, relatives and friends of those with heart problems, to join them and they don’t expect you to have a deep understanding of the clinical detail, just a keen desire to improve heart care and reporting.
Event: NICOR Patient and Public Open Day
Date: 8th of May 2014
Venue: 3rd Floor, 170 Tottenham Court Road, W1T 7HA
