The last three years have seen tremendous advances in the growth of cardiac rehabilitation programmes within the UK and throughout Europe. The formation of the British Association for Cardiac Rehabilitation (BACR) has been a milestone in the development of a professional network which aims to improve the safety and standards of programmes throughout the UI. Edited and written by a multidisciplinary subcommittee of the BACR, this book will be an invaluable tool for practitioners working in cardiac rehabilitation, not only for those lookin for guidance in setting up a new scheme but also for those already running programmes. BACR Guidelines for Cardiac Rehabilitation provides an overview of research findings; areas covered include the structure, content, personnel, administration and funding of a programme, as well as detailed information on exercise testing and prescription, motivating adults to exercise and other psycho–social aspects of cardiac rehabilitation.
