The Saudi Group of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (SGCVPR) is a Group of Health Professionals with multifaceted and multi-disciplinary specialities and functions who worked in cardiac centers and hospitals within all regions of Saudi Arabia. These includes a certified (Preventive Cardiologistand/or a Cardiologist who had a great interest in this field and ready to participate, Primary Care and Family Physician who had an interest and worked in the management of cardiovascular risk factors and modification, Exercise Physiologist and Physiotherapist who are certified in this field , or who had interest and had worked in similar exercise program, (e.g. at post bypass surgery in a cardiac center, Certified Cardiac Nurses who worked before as a Nurse Manager of CRP or had interest to work and participate in this field , Health Educators Nutritionist/Dietitian, and Social Workers/ Psychologists).
These group of health professionals worked together under the AUSPICES OF SHA and meet 3-4 times in a year with a pre-specified date and venue ( which will be rotational in different regions of the Kingdom) each meeting will be held in 1 day or 2 days.

The Group is looking forward to see a comprehensive structural cardiac rehabilitation programs are well established in each cardiac center in Saudi Arabia and major hospitals which run a full cardiac service , As an obligatory service rather than being an option.
Using the home visit as an adjunctive facilities to improve the low referral rate to this outpatient program and using different strategy to establish an appropriate community based program to maintain what was gained in this comprehensive program.

Going back to the history and looking at the evolution of CRP and preventive cardiology initially, exercise based program proved its efficacy in improving CVD morbidities and mortalities but later on the randomized clinical trial proved that this will be more efficient if combined with a comprehensive secondary prevention concentrate, which have been declared by the AHA in 1995.

  • Our group is not going to invent the wheel again, but we are going to start from where the world ended and our goal would be the same as the former global advocacy panel of Cardiac rehabilitation and currently called the International Collaboration for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation

( ICCPR ); is to make this service as an essential service for any eligible patient suffering from CVD at any cardiac center within the Kingdom.

  • Low referral rate to this program is recognizable worldwide despite proven efficacy with an expected lower referral rate in our area with newly born comprehensive structural program with probably lower capacity to accommodate the huge number of all cardiac patients, and also with other cultural consideration therefore, our second mission and objective is to overcome this by studying and analyzing this problem and create and probably enhance to use a new adjunctive facility to this outpatient program, such as the Home Visit and create specific patient criteria for them to be enrolled into this adjunctive program.

3) Our last but not the least target and objective is to establish a community- based program which have been used to maintain what have been gained at the oupatient program, in most industrialized country. Our goal here will probably be a little bit different, as we will be aiming to use this community –based program as an adjunctive facility; the same as the Home Visit by creating again specific patients criteria to be enrolled into this program in addition to its former use as a maintainance program.
I believed that these three main missions and objectives can be achieved by our group through our regular meeting whether scientific or business as following:

  • Through this meeting we share and participate opinion, identify obstacles and indulge into finding a solution. Create ideas which will be tailored by the most updated recommendations and guidelines, and to get expert influences and opinions by inviting other partner’s members of similar international group/society or association.
  • Increase awareness of health professionals, health administrators, and health providers in the area about the crucial need for such a comprehensive program to reduce cardiovascular outcome and emphasizing on the cost effectiveness of this service. Subsequently, a call for action to help and facilitate achieving our goal to recognize this CRP and prevention as an obligatory service in each cardiac center within Saudi Arabia and looking forward to improve the service to its state of art.
  • Increase the awareness of the cardiac patients and public about the significant importance of primary and secondary preventions and method to improve the life styles with emphasis on how effective this comprehensive CRP in improving CV outcome and improving quality of life.

Subsequently,this will encourage patient to participate in this program and lead to the improvement of low referral rate.

  • Encourage, supervise and design research and national project related to this field which help to produce a new recommendation and modification of guidelines that suite our ethnic group and our culture.
  • Involved health administrator and businessmen, charity and industry to participate as honor members or through partnership to achieve our goal through moral, intellectual and financial support.
