Abstract Education is accepted as a key component of cardiac rehabilitation for patients following myocardial infarction and bypass graft surgery. Recently, there has been a call for rehabilitation to be uniformly offered to partners and families of cardiacpatients, and for the expanding boundaries of rehabilitation to include patients who undergo coronaryangioplasty. This paper aims to highlight patient education strategies for cardiacpatients and partners with a focus on assessment of their educational needs. The unique needs of patientsundergoingcoronaryangioplasty and their partners will then be discussed with existing cardiac educational strategies expanded to encompass this group of patients.
