Required Fields

The Department of Physiotherapy, Monash University is pleased to announce the following upcoming seminar entitled:

"Does cardiac rehabilitation really work? If so, how should we do it?"

A recent systematic review and meta-analysis http://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/8/3/e019656 has cast an interesting spotlight on the role for cardiac rehabilitation in the management of patients with cardiac dysfunction. This seminar aims to review this evidence and provide an update on the latest insights into the ways we should conduct cardiac rehabilitation in clinical practice. It is hoped this session will allow for engaging interactive discussions regarding the evolution of practice in this field.
