Williams, Anne; Burke, Diane; Lockyer, Lesley
The anxiety caused by living with angina can be very debilitating and affects patients' quality of life. In one trust an angina management programme was set up to provide educational and psychosocial support, with an emphasis on cardiac risk factor modification. Regular monitoring of patients at nurse-led clinics and multidisciplinary teamwork were important elements.
