    Abstract

    Background: There are significant disparities in access to evidence-based care and health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people during an acute cardiac hospitalisation. However, the experiences of care for this patient group are not well understood.
    Conclusion:The identification of multiple factors which influence patient’s experience can better inform strategies to overcome barriers and improve access and quality of care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
