Advice for resumption of Cardiac Rehab programs
We’ve been getting a few requests from clinicians lately about guidelines or recommendations for providing CR during the latest wave of the pandemic. While ACRA does not have specific guidelines for this purpose we recommend the following:
- check with local infection prevention control – every health organisation has different rules
- consult your local hospital/institution guidelines around management of outpatients and clinics then look at other resources such as government advisories and directives
- the Guiding Principles for Resumption and Continuation of Cardiac Rehabilitation in NSW provide additional useful detail: https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/communities-of-practice/Pages/guide-resumption-cardiac-rehab.aspx
