  • Research on the reasons for non-attendance have cited cost, access to rural & remote, cultural, and linguistic barriers.
  • Giving patients a choice in the way cardiac rehabilitation is delivered to them is important to their motivation to successfully complete a program of cardiac rehabilitation.
  • In collaboration with the Integrated Cardiac Clinical Network (iCCnet), Country Access to Telephone Cardiac Health (CATCH) and Brentnalls SA we have developed a business model based on integrating current care to support the option of patients receiving their cardiac rehabilitation through their primary care.
