Project: An Investigation into the Provision of Nutrition Care in Cardiac Rehabilitation Services in Australia

Little is known about how nutrition information is provided to patients as part of CR. The aim of this project is to improve knowledge of current nutrition care practice in CR, as well as barriers and facilitators to providing nutrition care. It is anticipated that this knowledge might allow improved nutrition programs to be developed for use in CR.

Who can take part?: Cardiac rehabilitation service coordinators across Australia.

What is involved?: A short, anonymous online survey (estimated time approx. 10mins).

Where can I get more information?: More information can be obtained at the following web address https://redcap.hmri.org.au/surveys/?s=H7XK44YKJ3 or by contacting Lucy Kocanda (PhD candidate, lucy.kocanda@uon.edu.au)

Project: Investigating Cardiac Rehabilitation for transient ischaemic Attack and Mild-Stroke (CRAMS)

  • Are you an Australian Stroke or Cardiac Rehab health professional?
  • Do you want to improve the health and quality‑of‑life of people with TIA or mild‑stroke?

We are seeking volunteers to participate in our qualitative study. This study aims to explore in‑depth barriers and enablers to transient ischaemic attack (TIA) and mild‑stroke inclusion in cardiac rehabilitation programs from health professionals working in stroke and cardiac rehabilitation.

Participation in the study would require taking part in one telephone semi‑structured interview for approximately 30 minutes, at a time that is suitable to you.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Ms Eve Dudley (Honours student) via email at u3163853@uni.canberra.edu.au
