Cardiac Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention Program - How To Access
Your cardiologist or primary care practitioner (family doctor or nurse practitioner) can refer you to the Cardiac Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention Program. Once we have received your referral, notification of your intake assessment will be sent to you in the mail along with a requisition for blood work, which needs to be completed in advance of the intake assessment. This first visit is an opportunity to meet your nurse and cardiologist. At this first visit, we will do a physical assessment and review your medications. You will also have an exercise stress test. You will have an opportunity to learn about the program and ask any questions you may have. At the end of this visit you will be given an appointment with a rehabilitation trainer and a dietitian.
Your family doctor and referring physician will be kept informed of your progress throughout the program.
