Home-based cardiac rehab is emerging as an effective alternative to hospital-based cardiac rehabilitation, with observed improvements in access, participation and outcomes. The design and implementation of a successful home-based cardiac rehab program requires the involvement of and execution by numerous members of the care team—doctors, nurses, exercise physiologists or physical therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, psychologists, social workers, case managers and home-care professionals. This web seminar will provide an overview of home-based cardiac rehab programs and present multidisciplinary care teams with ideas for designing and implementing a home-based cardiac rehab program. 

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Explain the recent literature supporting the case for home-based cardiac rehab;
  • Identify and discuss three clinical cases that are appropriate for home-based cardiac rehab;
  • Describe the approaches and tools necessary for effective implementation of home-based cardiac rehab; and,
  • Differentiate the roles of the members of the care team in executing home-based cardiac rehab.
