Each year over 2,000 Heart Attacks are treated at St. Boniface Hospital. The Manitoba ACS Network is committed to improve outcomes in these patients. This network is tasked to ensure that Heart Attacks patients have guideline-based care optimally, consistently and safely administered throughout the province. Our network employs Recommended Standards, Algorithms, review of local protocols, partnering with EMS and reporting of key performance indicators to ensure quality. We have strong links to health care providers providing care to Indigenous patients to address their specific needs.
The ACS Network’s Heart Attack Day is designed to help health care professionals navigate systemic barriers to find the resources patients need; to teach Manitoba physicians, nurses, pharmacists, allied health, cardiology technologists, paramedics, and educators the optimal care of patients with heart attacks.
• To identify recent practice changes in the contemporary management of patients presenting with ACS from pre-hospital to rehabilitation
• To improve ability to diagnose, triage, treat and follow up of non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients
• To understand the unique challenges and recent quality initiatives that address service gaps in rural Indigenous ACS health
• To discuss challenges and opportunities for improvement of ACS patients post-discharge
