Heart Foundation media release: Health services urged to resume face-to-face rehab for heart patients

The Heart Foundation is urging health services to prioritise the return of face-to-face cardiac rehabilitation programs to ensure heart attack sufferers complete all sessions of the life-saving program.

A new Heart Foundation survey found that 73 percent of heart attack survivors who attended a cardiac rehabilitation program in-person in the past six months completed the whole program, compared to just 14 percent who completed the sessions via telehealth. The findings are being released to encourage hospitals to prioritise the return of face-to-face cardiac rehab.

The full media release can be found on the Heart Foundation website or via our ACRA Members COVID-19 Resources Page
