Many people who suffer a Cardiac incident believe that once they’ve been discharged from Hospital, they’re cured for life. However if you’ve had one Cardiac incident, you’re much more likely to have another one.
Fortunately, there is something they can do to lessen the chance of another incident. So the National Heart Foundation commissioned GSC to create a series of videos to show how, with the 6 Steps to Cardiac Recovery.
The 6 part series features Cardiologists, Dieticians, Occupational Therapists, GPs and recovering cardiac patients discussing a range of issues including Diagnosis; Managing risk factors, Healthy diet and exercise, Rehabilitation, Medications and Follow up GP Consultations.
These videos are designed for people recovering from a cardiac incident to view in hospital, then take home to share with their care-givers.
Heart conditions affect all parts of Australian society. So we translated and sub-titled the program in Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, Dari, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Macedonian, Maltese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese.
As well as online access, the video series is also available in DVD.
