Activities

ANZACT – the ANZ Alliance for Cardiovascular Trials Network

CRE-COI is leading the development of this network for clinicians, scientists, support staff and consumers with an active interest in cardiovascular trials and registries. Membership is currently free – visit the website to find out more.  www.anzact.org

The WA Cardiac Outcomes Registry (WACOR)

An initiative with St John of God (SJOG) Health Care in Bunbury Hospital to monitor the safety and quality of care given to patients undergoing specified cardiac procedures (initially Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, PCI) and report the outcomes back to the participating clinicians and hospitals.

Heart Failure Prometheus Project

CRE-COI has supported the development of an IT platform (in association with Safer Care Victoria) to link the Victorian Cardiac Outcomes Registry for Heart Failure to capture patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs). 

Collaborations

CRE-COI provided leveraged funding to support a successful application to the Hospital Research Foundation Basil Hetzel for a Translational Grant led by Prof John Beltrame:  MINOCA – Potential Mechanisms and Treatment of Post-infarct Angina in Patients with Myocardial Infarction with Non-obstructed Coronary Arteries ($750,000)

Secure Unified Research Environment (SURE)

SURE is a secure, remote-access data research laboratory purpose-built to protect confidentiality and privacy. It allows registered researchers to access and analyse linked health-related data from multiple sources such as hospitals, general practice and registries for approved studies. CRE-COI has supported researchers with access to cardiac registry data via SURE.  Some examples include:

• Dr Chee Yoong Foo, Monash University
Re-examining the door-to-balloon time-outcome relationship: an instrumental variable approach

• Dr Vikrant Dhurandhar, University of Sydney
30 day mortality and morbidity for mitral valve surgery in high risk patient groups

• Dr Richard Norman, Curtin University
The relationship between the EQ-5D and interventional outcomes for percutaneous intervention patients
