BACR Guidelines for Cardiac Rehabilitation
The last three years have seen tremendous advances in the growth of cardiac rehabilitation programmes within the UK and throughout Europe. The formation of the British Association for Cardiac Rehabilitation (BACR) has been a milestone in the development of a professional network which aims to improve the safety and standards of programmes throughout the UK. This volume should be a useful tool for practitioners working in cardiac rehabilitation, not only for those looking for guidance in setting up a new scheme, but also for those already running programmes. It provides an overview of research findings, and areas covered include the structure, content, personnel, administration and funding of a programme, as well as detailed information on exercise testing and prescription, motivating adults to exercise and other psycho-social aspects of cardiac rehabilitation.
