SIGN guideline 149: Risk estimation and the prevention of cardiovascular disease and SIGN guideline 150: Cardiac rehabilitation are part of a set of six coronary heart disease guidelines being updated by SIGN over the course of 2016–2018.

SIGN guideline 149 provides recommendations on how to estimate and manage cardiovascular risk in people with and without established CVD.

SIGN guideline 150  includes recommendations on assessment, health behaviour change techniques, lifestyle risk factor management, psychosocial health, vocational rehabilitation and medical risk management. The guideline reflects the most recent evidence and aligns with the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR) Standards and Core Components and the Scottish Government’s 2020 Vision for cardiac rehabilitation.

Our patient booklet Cardiac rehab, based on SIGN 150 is now also available.
