PMID:  12813617     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The Cardiac Care Network of Ontario Consensus Panel on Cardiac Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention drew on the literature and its own expertise, and surveyed existing cardiac rehabilitation and secondary prevention (CR) services in Ontario to make recommendations for the delivery of CR services in Ontario. This report, which is not an official position paper for the Canadian Cardiovascular Society, presents these recommendations. The key recommendations were a regional coordination model for the delivery of CR services that would provide CR close to home and promote access to CR in groups traditionally underrepresented in CR; high quality central data collection; the creation of a provincial CR registry to allow future planning, coordination, monitoring and evaluation of CR services in Ontario; and the establishment of specific CR program funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.
