Cardiac Rehabilitation

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program offers education and exercise for patients who have cardiovascular disease or have had a cardiac event.  Significant benefit can be gained through cardiac rehabilitation by patient interventions such as self-management strategies, medication, education, physical activities and more.

Referral Criteria

The core group of people eligible for cardiac rehabilitation are those who have had:

  • Myocardial infarct (ST elevation MI, non-ST elevation MI)
  • Re-vascularisation procedures
  • Stable or unstable angina
  • Controlled heart failure
  • Other vascular or heart diseases.

People with other presenting problems, such as Type 2 diabetes or multiple risk factors may also participate in cardiac rehabilitation as many elements have broad reference.

Service exclusions apply for this service.

Referral Procedure

Referral to this program can be via an inpatient episode, a Medical Officer, Nurse or Allied Health worker, Community Health provider, General Practitioner or a Tertiary Facility.
