ABOUT CHAP PROJECT
Historically, cardiac rehabilitation (CR) has been delivered face-to-face to groups in acute hospitals or community centres. The content and length of CR programs varies considerably in Australia and national quality indicators are yet to be implemented. Alternative methods for provision of CR have been shown to be effective, but few have been implemented into practice.
Therefore, we would argue that the evidence for strategies to modify risk factors is strong but the evidence for the mode of delivery has become outdated.
