|Description||Participation in cardiac rehabilitation is known to reduce mortality and morbidity and increase health related quality of life. However, participation rate are low among elderly cardiac patients with coronary heart disease. Home-based cardiac rehabilitation could be an attractive alternative to the centre-based programmes but studies investigating the effect of these programmes are limited and even less is known about the effect among the elderly.|
