Project Description

Studies have demonstrated the deleterious effect of geographic distance (i.e., having a remote geographic place of residence) on access to cardiac care across Canada. This project examines the impact of distance on longer-term outcomes of catheterization, such as repeat cardiac procedure, cardiac readmission, and survival.
