Call-to-Action for Cardiovascular Rehabilitation

As of June 22, 2017, CorHealth Ontario is an organization formed by the merger of the Cardiac Care Network of Ontario and the Ontario Stroke Network, with an expanded mandate spanning cardiac, stroke and vascular through the entire course of care including secondary prevention, rehabilitation and recovery. 

One of CorHealth Ontario’s key projects that CRNO supports and endorses is a Rehabilitation Call-to-Action that identifies the gaps and issues in rehabilitation care in CorHealth Ontario’s three clinical domains; cardiac, vascular and stroke in Ontario.


  • Analyze the current state of cardiac, vascular and stroke rehabilitation care in Ontario using available data and identify unique and common features across more than one area
  • Identify the gaps and issues in rehabilitation care in each of the three areas
  • Develop a series of priorities/recommendations to be submitted to the MOHLTC early 2018
