New Series: Caregiver and Patient Viewpoints
This issue of Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes  features the first article in a new series, entitled Caregiver and Patient Viewpoints, intended to highlight the challenges both patients and caregivers face in dealing with cardiovascular disease and the health care system. Articles in this series seek to further understanding of the experiences of both patients and caregivers, and will explore the effects of illness and treatment on patients' lives and on their relationships with family, friends, caregivers, and health care providers.
The inaugural article tackles the experience of a patient with coronary artery disease and discusses how he perceived his interactions with his physicians. Editor Dr. Harlan Krumholz and Editorial Board Member Marilyn Mann also discuss the series in a related Editor’s Note.
