Developed by a multidisciplinary team of experts in cardiology, emergency medicine, nursing, and quality improvement – the toolkit consists of three types of tools:
- Tools for improving organizational culture: project support and approval, team building, and action planning.
- Tools for implementing specific evidence-based strategies to reduce D2B times: ED physician activates the cath lab, single call activates the cath lab, cath lab team available within 30 minutes, and prompt data feedback.
Tools for data monitoring and feedback.
Implementation of D2B is through the application of D2B's Strategic Tools and participation in the learning network.
