AbstractThe guide is one of outcomes of a pilot project on the therapeutic education of patients with coronary heart disease, carried out between 1998 and 2003, in the Udine and Volterra areas, Italy.

The goal was to improve the outcomes of secondary prevention measures. The work was coordinated by the Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre, Udine, Italy, WHO Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention in Cardiovascular Diseases. The training was based on the principles of therapeutic patient education. The training sessions focused on basic knowledge of the structure and functioning of the cardiovascular system, guide symptoms and signs of emerging acute cardiovascular conditions, preventing and managing cardiovascular risk factors and principles of treatment. The ways of communicating health in the therapeutic education of patient were briefly presented. This publication summarizes the content of these sessions.
