Abstract

Effective patients’ preparation for discharge is expected to improve adherence to long-term treatment and
functioning in chronic faze of coronary artery disease-ameliorating clinical outcome. This paper is aimed to
introduce the strategy of comprehensive post-ACS in-hospital patients’ evaluation regarding readiness for
hospital discharge, as well as a post-discharge assessment of adherence to pharmacological treatment and
functioning in the chronic phase of the coronary artery. A system of diagnostic tools allowing assessment
of patients during hospitalization and after discharge has been developed. The Readiness for Hospital
Discharge after Myocardial Infarction Scale (RHD-MIS) was designed for in-hospital evaluation, while the
Adherence in Chronic Diseases Scale (ACDS) and the Functioning in Chronic Illness Scale (FCIS) for
examination during follow-up visits. They are expected to reflect the effectiveness of different aspects of
patient-medical staff collaboration. Use of questionnaires seems to be a method of choice for this purpose
because of the simplicity, easiness of their application, and low cost. Self-reported questionnaires allow
comprehensive in-hospital and post-discharge assessment of patients after ACS.
