Physical Activity and Exercise in Heart Failure

Physical Activity and Exercise in Heart Failure

This 1-day course aims to increase the awareness of the impact of physical activity and exercise in the heart failure patient group through developing an understanding of the relationship between risk assessment, baseline functional assessment and subsequent exercise prescription.

Physiological mechanisms relating to heart failure will be explored and principles in exercise prescription applied to enable adaptations in respect to co-morbidity and cardio-assistive devices, using an evidence-based approach.

It will involve both lectures and interactive case studies. Knowledge gained will enable safe and effective practice which can be implemented in future service delivery.

It is not however a specialist qualification to lead, prescribe or deliver the exercise component of cardiac rehabilitation.
