Lewin, R J P, Ingleton, R, Newens, A J and Thompson, D R (1998) Adherence to cardiac rehabilitation guidelines: a survey of rehabilitation programmes in the United Kingdom. BMJ. pp. 1354-1355. ISSN 0959-8138Full text available as:
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 assess ment of needs. A previous survey of 25 cardiac rehabilitation programmes found little congruence with these guidelines and noted that physicians were particularly unlikely to be involved. We extended this inquiry to include all of the discoverable rehabilitation programmes in the United Kingdom.
