dc.description.abstract

© 2018 Royal Australasian College of Physicians. Doctor–patient language discordance has been shown to lead to worse clinical outcomes. In this study of patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-elevation myocardial infarction at an Australian health service, we demonstrated that limited English proficiency (LEP) is an independent predictor of prolonged symptom-to-door time, but does not lead to worse 30-day mortality compared with English-proficient patients. More effort needs to be placed in providing public health education in varied languages to encourage early presentation to hospital for patients with LEP.
