Dr Sally contributes to new BACPR handbook
Cardiac Rehabilitation is a key part of recovery after a heart incident. Exactly how rehabilitation is delivered, in practice, is the subject of ongoing review in the light of clinical and practitioner experience.
We are therefore very proud that Dr Sally Turner, who helped to found Basingstoke and Alton Cardiac Rehab with Dr Hugh Bethell in 1976, has co-authored a chapter in the new bible in all matters cardiac rehab ‘Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in Practice‘ recently published by the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR).
To quote the publishers: “The book is a comprehensive, practitioner-focused clinical handbook which provides internationally applicable evidence-based standards of good practice to help people with heart disease return to health. Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in Practice is an indispensable resource for all health professionals involved in cardiac rehabilitation and cardiovascular disease prevention”
Sally’s chapter is on Physical Activity and Exercise, an area that we are sure you will agree she is definitely an expert in! She helped to write the original BACPR guidelines in 1995 and this new edition mirrors BACPR good practice both nationally and internationally. It is testament to the expertise Sally has in this area that 40 years on she is still a widely acknowledged authority in her field and we are very grateful to have her as part of the team.
Congratulations to Sally and all the contributors on continuing this great seminal work to help those with heart disease support healthier lifestyles and reduce the risks of recurrence.
