Cardiovascular disease is 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.

Course objectives

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.

Educational objectives

Learn to set up and run a modern preventive programme, including exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation in cardiac patients with and without heart failure.

Learn how to implement a multidisciplinary approach (exercise prescription, smoking cessation, nutrition and psychosocial counselling).

Special focus on:

  • optimal medical therapy
  • patients with a high cardiovascular risk
  • exercise testing
  • exercise training and long-term management
  • sports cardiology and sports in patients with cardiac diseases
  • new frontiers and modern concepts in secondary prevention
