The Strategies and Therapies for Reducing Ischemic and Vascular Events (STRIVE) program has developed an acute coronary syndromes (ACS) Critical Pathways Toolkit to facilitate understanding and adoption of the new American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guidelines. This review provides many different types of tools, including pathway documents, pocket cards, standardized order sets, posters, and personal digital assistant programs, all aimed to improve the quality of care provided to patients with ACS. It is hoped that the availability of these materials will help physicians, nurses, and hospitals implement the new guidelines and thus improve outcomes for patients with ACS.
