Benefits of home-based low-to-moderate intensity exercise on quality of life in women with ischaemic heart disease

Dr Natalie Johnson, Emeritis Professor Richard Heller (University of Manachester)

Data collection for this study is almost complete. The aim of the study is to determine whether low-to-moderate intensity home exercise is a simple, low cost, efficacious means of maintaining or improving, the quality-of-life of women with ischaemic heart disease in the 12 months following completion of a formal, outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program. Dr Johnson and Professor Heller look forward to reporting the results of this study mid-late 2002 to the NHMRC and to the cardiac rehabilitation coordinators who kindly recruited study participants.
