Résumé
In the outpatient setting, the long-term management of cardiovascular risk factors is essential to prevent recurrent cardiovascular disease. Recent studies have shown an additional benefit of beginning cardiovascular secondary prevention during the hospital stay. Early, in-hospital initiation of proven beneficial medications, such as aspirin or blood lipid lowering drugs and therapeutic lifestyle change counseling, improves patients' long-term outcome, as long as there is continuity of care in the outpatient setting. A recent hospitalization may be a teachable moment, when patients are more likely to modify their health behaviors. The continuity of care between in-hospital medicine and the outpatient setting helps patients in the long-term management of their cardiovascular disease.
