Cardiovascular disease remain the leading cause of death and disability in most European countries. Secondary prevention has become a cornerstone of treatment, but a majority of coronary patients do not achieve guideline standards, predisposing them to progression of disease, recurrent events, and heart failure.

Modern preventive cardiology and cardiac rehabilitation programmes, appropriately adapted to medical and cultural settings, have the potential to effectuate a healthier lifestyle, better risk factor control and adherence with cardioprotective medication.
There is a clear need to improve the situation by increasing the number of modern preventive cardiology programmes, facilitating the access to these programmes, and tailoring these programmes to the requirements of the patients.
Moreover, the fixed-term and often centre-based programmes have to be modified based on patients preferences and provide concepts for long-term management.
