What are patient perception of cardiac rehabilitation programmes (CRPs)?
(2016) What are patient perception of cardiac rehabilitation programmes (CRPs)?, no. 68.
The intention of this research proposal is to explore, promote and evaluate patient's perception on participation in cardiac rehabilitation programmes (CRPs) and gain their views on how to promote an increase in the uptake and adherence to CRPs. Cardiac rehabilitation programmes (CRPs) can assist in maintaining a decrease about 25% in morbidity and mortality by supporting patients in recovering physical and psychosocial health through modifying risk factor (Grace et al. 2011). Cardiac rehabilitation is effective, nevertheless, uptake rates are still low with only about 45% participation. Moreover, about 30% of non-participants expressed a lack of interest in partaking in the CRPs. The literature review revealed that why a lot of patients were not offered or referred to CRPs. It also examines where CRPs can take place to encourage the highest rate of participant; this might be community-based, home-based, or centre-based CRPs. The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE 2013) indicated that patients preferences should be considered and CRPs must be approachable for those who requires it. The study will take place in Lothian and its localities over a period of 12 months, Twentyfive potential participants will be encouraged to partake in the research. Individuals who are enthusiastic to contribute will be interviewed to gain qualitative data on their experiences, perception, opinion, thought and insights. It is anticipated that by conducting out this proposal research, an explanation of reasons for non-uptake of CRP's will be discovered and offer a vital source for nurses and the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) acquiring evidence from practice about contemporary CR. It would validate a method of developing CRPs for patient/family who can not participate due to various reasons.
