Cardiac Rehabilitation is defined as the sum of activities required to influence favourably the underlying cause of the disease, as well as to ensure the patients the best possible physical mental and social conditions, so that they may, by their own efforts, preserve, or resume when lost, a place as normal as possible in the life of the community
This course aims to provide health professionals with an understanding of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention, enable health professionals to provide an effective Cardiac Rehabilitation service and to objectively evaluate their clinical practice through research.
The course builds on the former MSc in Cardiac Rehabilitation. There is a greater emphasis on prevention of cardiac disease and the importance of primary care is highlighted through various elements of the course. These modifications reflect the recent advancements in health policy and delivery.
Teaching will include lectures, laboratory practicals, seminars and tutorials. Practical experience in Cardiac Rehabilitation will also be provided. Specialist themes covered include:
An individual research project on some novel aspect of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention shall be completed. Students shall be assigned a supervisor with whom the research topic must be agreed. The proposal must be accepted by the course committee prior to commencement. Ethical approval for research projects will be sought where necessary. The dissertation will involve regular meetings between the student and supervisor.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
The course is intended for those currently working in or about to develop Cardiac Rehabilitation programmes either within Cardiology Departments or Primary Care units. As such, to be eligible for admission, applicants must fit one of the following descriptions.
