MSc Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

University of Galway

This dual delivery course enables students to complete this postgraduate qualification either in person, blended or fully online. The course equips students with the knowledge and skills required to make meaningful contributions to cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation practice. The scientific evidence for comprehensive rehabilitation is compelling in these populations. Furthermore, service transformations advocate for integrated approaches to delivery. As such, contemporary and evidence-based practice features strongly together with multidisciplinary approaches to the comprehensive delivery of high-quality care. The effective implementation of intensive lifestyle and medical risk factor management together with enabling psychosocial health and wellbeing are cornerstone.

Unique features of this programme include:

The course addresses the latest evidence-base, implementation of best-practice guidelines and healthcare policy, behavioural change strategies, lifestyle approaches to risk factor modification, psychosocial health and medical management of risk factors including hypertension, dyslipidaemia, diabetes mellitus, obesity and smoking. Outcome measures, health technology and innovation in service design also feature strongly to enable programme uptake and high-quality delivery.  Whilst focussed on cardiovascular and pulmonary populations the content aligns strongly to the management of non-communicable diseases.
