"Many patients and families expressed frustration over the waiting list, telling us their atrial fibrillation episodes were significantly affecting their quality of life," said Dr. John Sapp, director of the Heart Rhythm Service at Capital Health's QEII Health Sciences Centre.

Sapp teamed up with heart health portfolio director Karen MacRury-Sweet to find a solution that would address the patients' concerns and help improve the quality of life for those waiting for treatment.
"Many patients expressed frustration over having to wait in the hospital for two to three days prior to the procedure," said Sapp.
"Patients told us they wanted to have someone to talk to about pre-procedure issues and post-procedure concerns," said Sapp.
He told us this was the first time that he really understood what he was going to have done, as he had never before had it explained to him in such detail," said Sapp.
The work of Sapp and his team is currently being studied to see how it can be applied to other health-care teams at Capital Health. It also recently won a gold Capital Health Quality Award, which recognizes the efforts and success of our health-care teams to come up with innovative ways to better provide quality health care.
"It's so great to be able to fix something in health care," said Sapp.
