Inequity in one-year mortality after first myocardial infarction in M āori and Pacific patients: how much is associated with differences in modifiable clinical risk factors? (ANZACS-QI 49).

CONCLUSION: In New Zealand patients after their first MI there is a three-fold variation in one-year mortality based on ethnicity. At least half of the inequity in outcomes for Māori, and three-quarters for Pacific people, is associated with differences in preventable or modifiable clinical factors present at, or prior to, presentation.
