Patients with acute coronary syndrome after primary percutaneous coronary intervention are still at high cardiovascular risk. This study aimed to investigate patients’ current knowledge, their learning needs, and self-efficacy regarding their heart disease. To achieve this purpose, participants completed questionnaires (the Cardiac Patients Learning Needs Inventory, a questionnaire about disease-specific knowledge of patients with acute coronary syndrome, and the Cardiac Self-Efficacy Scale) before discharge. Risk avoidance of reinfarction and strategies for future emergencies are essential concerns for patients. This study provides a basis for nurse-led education regarding secondary prevention among patients before discharge. Further studies should explore the nurse-led education process.
