Back on Track: Overview

Back on Track has been created to support you in your physical and emotional recovery after a heart attack. By maintaining a healthy body and mind you can improve your quality of life and reduce your chance of another heart event. That means a longer and happier life.

Back on Track was developed by health psychologists and is designed to support the recommendations of your doctors and other health professionals. If you have any concerns or questions about your recovery or treatment, it is important that you speak with your doctor or a health professional.  If you find that completing these modules raises issues for you that you would like to talk about in more detail, such as how you are coping emotionally, you can access an Australian Centre for Heart Health professional for support by phoning  03 9326 8544 during business hours.

Also, some people have found it helpful to involve a family member or other support person while they do the program.

The program is made up of five modules. Each module has an accompanying handbook. We suggest you print the PDF version of the handbook and write on it or alternatively, you can download the word version of the handbook and type in your response. Alternatively, you can call 03 9326 8544 and request that a printed version of the handbook is mailed to you. You can move through the modules in any order, so start with the module that will be most beneficial to you.
