Brief description This study will provide up to date and definitive data on the burden of acute coronary heart disease among Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in WA and patterns of care. It will document the use of lifesaving coronary interventions, participation in cardiac rehabilitation programs and use of appropriate medicines. Indigenous people will have opportunities to describe any barriers they face to access to receiving standard treatment for a heart attack and secondary prevention afterwards.
