Identifying and addressing barriers and enablers to implementing best-practice cardiac rehabilitation: Quality Improvement in Cardiac Rehabilitation (QUICR) Cluster-Randomised Controlled Trial 

Cardiac rehabilitation prevents further heart attacks and hospital admissions, but participation is low and quality variable. We have shown that collaborative quality improvement programs can address barriers and enable improvement in care quality and delivery in primary care. In this clinical trial, we will work with partners to determine if a quality improvement approach, supported by an electronic data platform, enhances cardiac rehabilitation quality of care and improves patient outcomes. 

This trial is funded by the MRFF Cardiovascular Health Mission Grant led by Prof Robyn Gallagher.
