Check out the outcomes of patients in ICRR-participating CR programmes. We measure up! Click here to read the full report.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are among the leading burdens of death and disability globally. This burden is increasing at an alarming rate in low and middle income countries (LMICs). Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is an evidence-based secondary prevention model of care to mitigate this burden. The ICCPR’s Global Audit already establishes that the greatest need for programs is in LMICs.
ICCPR has now developed the first-ever International Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry to support development of programs in LMICs and other low-resource settings. The aim of the registry is to promote cardiac rehabilitation quality to ultimately improve patient outcomes, but also advocacy and research.
With institutional approval, participating programs enter data on patients pre programme, post and annually thereafter, on ~ 30 variables. The many benefits for programmes in participation are shown at the end of the report.
Patients are also considered in the ICRR. The patient voice is presented through the User sub-committee.
Registry-participating patients can receive a lay summary at the end of their programme, which shows their progress and outstanding areas to be addressed.
