Formatted abstract This study by Galdas and Kang (2010) has extended current limited evidence into the experience of cardiac rehabilitation of an important minority population who have a higher risk of mortality from myocardial infarction than the general UK population. Whilst some factors previously identified in South Asian populations engaging in cardiac rehabilitation were confirmed, yet family/carer support was not, the willingness of these individual’s to adhere to cardiac rehabilitation advice and make lifestyle adjustments was a significant finding in itself. Avoiding ethnic generalisations and focusing on culturally relevant tailored rehabilitation strategies may be the initial step from which to improve the appropriateness of cardiac rehabilitation programmes for this minority group.
