    D REACH-HF: Digital Rehabilitation Enablement in Chronic Heart Failure

    The REACH-HF programme is now being rolled-out across the UK using the paper-based manual. Although the programme has been well received by patients, caregivers and health professionals, we have had many requests for it to be in a digital format, e.g. accessed via a website or app.

    We received funding from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Hope for Hearts fund to create a digital version of the REACH-HF programme (D REACH-HF) to improve patient choice of, and accessibility to, cardiac rehabilitation.

    We engaged in interviews and discussions with patients, caregivers and health professionals to help us understand and include their perspectives in the development of the digital REACH-HF intervention.

    We will continue to work with patient and public involvement (PPI) advisors, to engage in the design, delivery and dissemination of this project to ensure that the work undertaken is sensitive to the needs of HF patients.
