Growth and development of a cardiac rehabilitation support group.

Abstract

This article describes the initiation and evolution of the support group component of a cardiac rehabilitation pilot program. It also outlines how the group was initiated and discusses the group's development during the 20 weeks of its existence. The description of this nurse-facilitated support group provides a model for clinicians interested in integrating such an approach into their own cardiac rehabilitation programs.
