dc.description.abstractBackground and Aim: Hospitalisation for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is typically brief. The onset of psychological distress is common between the period from hospital discharge until cardiologist review and or commencement of cardiac rehabilitation. Contributing factors to psychological distress for this population are insufficient education and deficiencies in self-management skills. The aim of this review was to synthesise evidence on the effectiveness of nurse-led clinics delivered in the early discharge period (up to 30 days) after PCI on patient-related and health service-related outcomes. Method: A systematic review was undertaken following PRISMA guidelines. Searches of PubMed, OVID, CINAHL, EMBASE, Cochrane Library (CENTRAL), SCOPUS, ProQuest theses and dissertations databases were conducted to find published and unpublished randomised, controlled trials. Two independent reviewers appraised the included studies using the Cochrane Risk of Bias tool. Results: A total 2,600 titles and abstracts were screened. Three studies met inclusion criteria, with 182 participants included. Participant recruitment and retention rates in these studies indicated that operation of nurse-led clinics in the early postprocedure period was feasible. Sample sizes were small, resulting in imprecise estimates of the effect of nurse-led clinics on all outcomes, including anxiety and depression. Conclusion: Larger randomised trials are needed to address the deficiencies in the evidence base for psychological and self-management interventions in the early postdischarge period after PCI to improve patient and health service outcomes.
