Adherence to cardiac rehabilitation guidelines: a survey of rehabilitation programmes in the United Kingdom

By R J P Lewin, R Ingleton, A J Newens and D R Thompson


Two key recommendations of recent guidelines are that cardiac rehabilitation requires the skills of a range of professionals and that the patient should receive a menu based programme after an individual assessĀ­ ment of needs.

We extended this inquiry to include all of the discoverable rehabilitation programmes in the United Kingdom
