Preventing the revolving door of hospital readmissions with Dr Clementine Labrosciano

Video series: Translating Research 

In this episode, we hear from Dr Clementine Labrosciano about her research focussing on patients admitted to hospital after a heart attack.

We learn that Dr Labrosciano is working to build a reliable way for doctors to support patients at highest risk of readmission after their initial phase of recovery. Importantly,

  • in Australia, around 55,000 people experience a heart attack every year, around one fifth of whom will return to hospital within 30 days
  • where appropriate, preventing hospital readmissions is beneficial for both patients and the hospital system
  • with better prediction models, doctors will be able to deliver targeted healthcare for patients at highest risk of readmission.
