Proposed Project Research to Reduce Time to Treatment for Heart Attack/Myocardial Infraction for Rural American Indians/ Alaska Natives (AI/AN)—NEW— National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41757 Background and Brief Description Every year, approximately 1.1 million Americans have a first or recurrent heart attack/myocardial infarction (MI) and about one third of these will be fatal. Early recognition of MI by both the victim and bystanders followed by prompt cardiac emergency and advanced care has a direct effect on patient outcomes (heart damage, morbidity and mortality): the shorter the delay to treatment, the better the outcomes. Results of a recent Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFSS) survey showed that public recognition of major MI symptoms and the need for immediate action by calling 9–1–1 was poor and that there is a need for increased public health efforts. Patient delay accounts for most of the lag in treatment. Data from the National MI Registry show that the greatest disparity for delay in treatment exists among the racial and ethnic groups of American Indian/Alaskan Native group. The NATIVE study shows that rural American Indians presenting with acute MI have marked delays in time to treatment (12% of patients waited between 12–24 hours and 23% waited more than 24 hours to present) thus, limiting treatment options; the primary cause of the delay was due to patient misunderstandings about the symptoms of MI. The project will contribute to our understanding of AI/AN populations and their perceptions of and misconceptions about MI and the need for immediate treatment. Information gained from this project will provide the details needed to tailor message(s) for this population. The agency will develop culturally-tailored messages for native populations that will contribute to the existing National Heart Attack program (NHLBI) ‘‘Act in Time’’ messages. There will be a minimum of 84 key informant interviews and 16 persons in the two focus groups. The key informants will consist of healthcare providers, community leader, and persons who have had an MI. Key informants will be identified for interviews through a clustered, multistate snowball sampling technique. In recognition of the tribal diversity; study participants will represent three AI/AN regions of the U.S.: Great Plains identified by the Aberdeen Area Indian Health Service area, the South West distinct to the Phoenix, Albuquerque and Tucson areas and Alaskan Natives. Interview participants will have established relationships with tribes or E:\FR\FM\31JYN1.SGM 31JYN1
