What happens next? The role of cardiac rehabilitation in total patient care.

Abstract

Studies show that post-procedure cardiac patients are three times more likely to be depressive and in many cases suffer from a range of fears, doubts and uncertainties. Cardiac Rehabilitation provides a comprehensive program for support, education and guidance vital to the future well being of cardiac patients. Epworth HealthCare's HeartSmart program has now become a benchmark for programs set up by many other hospitals.
