Despite the increasing number of rehabilitation programmes for patients who have experienced a coronary event, uptake among women remains much lower than among men, partly because they get fewer referrals. This paper identifies the factors that contribute to women's poor attendance on such programmes and suggests ways of encouraging them to attend.
