Bite Sized Nutrition Tools to Improve Cardiac Rehabilitation Practice

How can you tell if nutrition is an aspect of a person’s recovery that might be holding them back? Is it in your scope of practice, and can you even assess nutrition with the limited time you have available? Join our team of nutrition experts (across both research and clinical practice) to try out practical and time-friendly tools to see how they can work for you, plus, have your cardiovascular nutrition questions answered.

Cardiac Rehabilitation for SCAD: Challenges and Solutions

While Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is increasingly recognised as a cardiac diagnosis, many cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programs are not yet catering for the specific needs of SCAD patients. This workshop will involve presentation of research findings from a qualitative and quantitative study of SCAD survivors, and a case example ‘benchmark of excellence’ on how to modify CR to accommodate the needs of SCAD survivors.
