The second edition of this textbook builds on the success of the original version by incorporating the latest developments in the clinical evidence base for cardiac rehabilitation whilst also aligning with the wider agenda in terms of commissioning and other national guidance. This edition also recognises the importance of an integrated approach to the prevention and rehabilitation of cardiovascular disease forming the foundation of every cardiac rehabilitation programme. Seven specified standards together with seven core components are presented which aim to ensure programmes are clinically effective and achieve sustainable health outcomes.
Edited and written by a multidisciplinary team of experts on behalf of the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation, this book provides contemporary evidence–based guidelines for standards of good practice.
