Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and the most expensive disease group treated in Australia. Only one-third of clinically eligible patients attend cardiac rehabilitation (CR). Non-attendees are socio-economically disadvantaged, have higher cardiovascular risk and live further from health services. Many CR attendees do not achieve their weight or physical activity targets. Innovative models of secondary prevention for cardiac disease are needed to address these gaps. The aims of this project were to determine: (1) the effectiveness of a telephone delivered pedometer-based intervention on weight and physical activity for urban and rural people referred to CR; (2) whether the findings on physical activity previously reported are replicated in the control group of this trial; and (3) the costs and cost-effectiveness of the interventions.
