About Cardiac Wellbeing Course

   

 

Researchers at the University of Regina are evaluating a free online depression and anxiety management course for people who have experienced a cardiac event in the past two years. The program is called the Cardiac Wellbeing Course, which is based on an evidence based psychological treatment (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). The Cardiac Wellbeing Course uses the Internet to help people who have experienced a cardiac event to manage symptoms of depression and anxiety.

The free Cardiac Wellbeing course is 8 weeks long and consists of 5 lessons. Lessons consist of educational materials that are accessed online, and clients are assigned a guide who provides weekly support and encouragement as people complete the Course.

To be eligible for the Cardiac Wellbeing Course, participants must:

  • Have experienced an acute coronary event (i.e., myocardial infarction or unstable angina) within the last 24 months
  • Be experiencing symptoms of depression and/or anxiety
  • Be a resident of Canada who will be in Canada during the 8 week course period
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Have access to a computer and the Internet

This study has been approved by the University of Regina Research Ethics Board.
