NEW PUBLICATION: The BACPR Core Competences for the Physical Activity and Exercise Component of Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Services
Following the launch of the revised BACPR Standards and Core Components for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation (March 2012) we are proud to announce the publication of the first set of Competences for the Physical Activity and Exercise Component
'The BACPR Standards and Core Components for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation' include seven standards and seven core components. By adopting these standards and core components this will lead to the realisation of modern and effective cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation services for the future that are both clinically and cost effective.
The seven core components include 'Physical Activity and Exercise' as part of ‘Lifestyle Risk Factor Management’ for which staff leading the exercise component of cardiac rehabilitation should be appropriately qualified, skilled and competent. ‘The Core Competences for the Physical Activity and Exercise Component’ forms a supporting document which provides a framework that encompasses the knowledge, skills and competences of all professional groups involved in delivery of the exercise and physical activity component within cardiac rehabilitation.
The BACPR will continue to develop competences frameworks for all core components over the next 12 months
