Cardiac Blues

 

1 in every 5 patients will go on to experience depression after a heart event. Depression in heart patients is associated with increased risk of another heart event and premature death.

A challenge for health professionals without mental health training is how to differentiate between patients who are having a normal reaction following a cardiac event - known as the 'Cardiac Blues' - and those who may be at risk of future depression.

This online training program consists of 1 module and is designed to assist health professionals to talk with patients about common emotional responses after an acute cardiac event, and to distinguish between the Cardiac Blues and depression.
