The Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) Department of Beaumont Hospital was recently accredited by the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) in the category of secondary prevention and cardiac rehabilitation.
Beaumont Hospital provides CR to the largest annual patient volume in Ireland, and is modelled on the Mayo Clinic’s ‘high-performance’ CR programme. Our comprehensive programme of multidisciplinary care provides supervised exercise training, education, risk factor modification, stress management and psychological support for patients and their families.
To earn EAPC centre accreditation, Beaumont Hospital participated in a rigorous application process requiring extensive documentation of the CR programme’s practices, and its performance was benchmarked against key performance indictors (KPIs) associated with international standards of cardiac rehabilitation and secondary prevention.
“We are very proud of this accreditation as it confirms our commitment to providing patients with guideline-driven, state-of-the-art and person-centred cardiovascular care”, said Helen Newton, CR Programme Manager.
“With this accreditation programme, the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) aims to set the standards for preventive cardiology practice, thus improving quality of care and cardiovascular health,” says Prof Michael Papadakis, EAPC President. “We congratulate Beaumont Hospital on this achievement.”
