BACKGROUND Participation in cardiac rehabilitation after acute myocardial infarction is sub-optimal. Offering home-based rehabilitation may improve uptake. We report the first randomized study of cardiac rehabilitation to include patient preference. AIM To compare the clinical effectiveness of a home-based rehabilitation with hospital-based rehabilitation(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death globally. Traditionally, centre-based cardiac rehabilitation programmes are offered to individuals after cardiac events to aid recovery and prevent further cardiac illness. Home-based cardiac rehabilitation programmes have been introduced in an attempt to widen access and participation.(More)
BACKGROUND Home-based cardiac rehabilitation offers an alternative to traditional, hospital-based cardiac rehabilitation. AIM To compare the cost effectiveness of home-based cardiac rehabilitation and hospital-based cardiac rehabilitation. METHODS 104 patients with an uncomplicated acute myocardial infarction and without major comorbidity were(More)
OBJECTIVES To develop a model of heart failure patients' attitudes, beliefs, expectations, and experiences based on published qualitative research that could influence the development of self-management strategies. METHODS A synthesis of 19 qualitative research studies using the method of meta-ethnography. RESULTS This synthesis offers a conceptual(More)
OBJECTIVE To update the Cochrane review comparing the effects of home-based and supervised centre-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on mortality and morbidity, quality of life, and modifiable cardiac risk factors in patients with heart disease. METHODS Systematic review and meta-analysis. The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL),(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with chronic heart failure (HF) experience a marked reduction in their exercise capacity, health-related quality of life, and life expectancy. Despite substantive evidence supporting exercise training in HF, uncertainties remain in the interpretation and understanding of this evidence base. Clinicians and healthcare providers seek(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify the needs of caregivers supporting a person with heart failure and to inform the development of a caregiver resource to be used as part of a home-based self-management programme. METHODS A qualitative study informed by thematic analysis involving 26 caregivers in individual interviews or a focus group. RESULTS Three distinct(More)
INTRODUCTION The Rehabilitation EnAblement in CHronic Heart Failure (REACH-HF) trial is part of a research programme designed to develop and evaluate a health professional facilitated, home-based, self-help rehabilitation intervention to improve self-care and health-related quality of life in people with heart failure and their caregivers. The trial will(More)
AIMS To assess the effectiveness of home-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR) for heart failure compared to either usual medical care (i.e. no CR) or centre-based CR on mortality, morbidity, exercise capacity, health-related quality of life, drop out, adherence rates, and costs. METHODS Randomised controlled trials were initially identified from previous(More)
