Project: The Cardiac Emotions Study

Researchers undertaking the Cardiac Emotions Study are interested in learning more about the emotional difficulties involved in people living with cardiac conditions. This phase of the Cardiac Emotions Study is looking at the specific fears experienced by patients with a cardiac condition. With this knowledge, they will develop the Fear of Cardiac Recurrence or Progression Scale, a
comprehensive measure of future-related fears in cardiac patients which could be used to screen CR patients.

Who can take part?: Adults with experience of an acute coronary event (ACS, AMI), cardiac surgery or chronic cardiac condition.

What is involved?:  Patients will be invited to take part in a 20-minute online questionnaire. Paper-based forms are also available if required.

CR clinicians and programs are asked to promote the study to their patients, by either providing patients with the flyer or displaying the flyer in patient-facing areas so people are able to scan the QR code.

You can download the flyer here: Flyer and QR code

Where can I get more information?: Any further questions or enquiries, please contact Sarah Tomoyo Clarke by email:

If you are interested in using our database of cardiac rehabiliation clinicians or services please review ACRA's Endorsement Policy and submit the completed form with the ACRA Secretariat.
