Heart Health Connect: an online community for cardiac health professionals

Many health professionals, particularly those practicing in regional, rural and remote areas, find it difficult to connect and network with other health professionals working in cardiac rehabilitation and heart failure management. 'Heart Health Connect' is an exciting new initiative aimed at connecting health professionals across Australia. A central goal of the project is to increase health professionals’ capacity to support patients in the self-management of their health conditions.

'Heart Health Connect' includes modules from our online Supporting Chronic Disease Self Management (CDSM) training program. The CDSM training incorporates evidence-based strategies from motivational interviewing and cognitive behaviour therapy, and is based on our original centre-based CDSM training.
