The article discusses a cross-sectional EUROASPIRE survey on the use and effects of cardiac rehabilitation programmes (CRPs) in European countries. The study reveals that the CR, though it is an inexpensive and cost-effective intervention, it is not delivered in a consistent, comprehensive or equitable way. The article presents some evidence in support of CR remaining controversial by some.
