Prise en charge éducative de l'infarctus du myocarde chez la femme

Abstract : Myocardial infarction is defined as a necrosis of an area of the heart. Various mechanisms can be involved at the origin of this myocardial infarction, the most common one is atherosclerosis. However, an accumulation of cardiovascular risk factors can have major role in the outbreak of this pathology such as arterial hypertension, smoking, diabetes, etc. The management of the disease must involve control of those risk factors previously quoted in order to reduce the risk of recurrence and also the risk of mortality. In this purpose, therapeutic education represents a major asset. This discipline helps the patients in their daily struggling with the disease and encourage them to become an actor of their healthcare. Myocardial infarction has long been considered as a pathology mainly affecting men. But it is now known cardiovascular diseases are the first women’s cause of lethality. Unfortunately, the women’s clinical signs of those diseases are different than men’s, those differences can lead to delay in the diagnosis. Furthermore, there are more men than women following the therapeutic education programs, this constatation can be explained by several reasons. Female educational prevention seems to be less present than male educational prevention. To remedy this, the dispensary pharmacist seems to be a major asset in the educational prevention patients journey’s. He could be able to offer methods and tools to understand patients’ needs. For example, he could redirect his patients to appropriate care structures such as nursing homes or patients associations with the aim of having the most appropiate and patient adpated care.
