The School of Population Health are running a ‘community conversation’ for people who have had, or care for someone, with heart disease, heart failure or atrial fibrillation. We are really interested in people coming along to tell us how they manage their heart disease and medicines.
Heart disease is still the number one killer of Australians. However there is strong evidence that certain medications are successful in preventing a second heart attack and improving survival. The problem is that we do not know if people continue to take their medicines for a long time after being discharged from hospital.
For practice to be evidence based, researchers need to understand what is happening with medications and heart disease. To do this it is important to hear about your experiences. We want to hear about any issues you may be experiencing as well as what you think needs to be researched in the area.
Our community conversation will take place on Wednesday 6 August 2014 between 12pm and 2.30pm in the Niche at the Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre in Nedlands. RSVP Essential.
Payment of out-of-pocket expenses and light lunch are provided. For more information or to RSVP for this event, please e-mail [email protected]
or call 6488 8176 Mon – Wed or 9489 7742 Thur – Fri.
We reserve the right to make changes to the events and the right to determine the confirmed registration list.
