New Research: Cardiac Rehabilitation Availability and Density around the Globe
Despite the epidemic of cardiovascular disease and the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation (CR), availability is known to be insufficient.
According to new research ”Cardiac Rehabilitation Availability and Density around the Globe” CR was available only in 111/203 countries. Almost half of countries around the globe have absolutely no cardiac rehab and there is only one cardiac rehab spot for every 12 patients.
Arto Hautala, Director of Research and Education at HUR was a representative of Finland in this first-ever global survey. You can read the report here.
