Resources for Physios

Access resources to support your practice

What is it?

This campaign is to put physiotherapists front of mind for people who are concerned about their heart health and want to improve cardiovascular ability, recover from a cardiac event or improve their heart health generally.  Our message is that physios are experts in cardiac rehabilitation and play an important role among the wider healthcare team. The campaign is designed to educate the public and encourage them to see a physiotherapist as part of their journey.

Why Heart Health?

The ISCP want to be part of the conversation where we are encouraging people to increase their movement in a safe way and arm them with the scientific support they need to become fitter and healthier. The focus areas are on

  • Aerobic capacity
  • General Heart Health
  • Recurrence Prevention
  • Cardiac Event Recovery
  • Improving Quality of Life

Chartered physiotherapists are medically trained professionals who can help people improve their movement. The goal of physiotherapy is to resolve any injuries and help people perform to their optimum physical capacity.
