Wells, A., & Faija, C. (2018). Metacognitive therapy for anxiety and depression in cardiac rehabilitation: Commentary on the UK National Institute of Health Research funder PATHWAY programme. Journal of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Sciences, 10-14
Background: Anxiety and depression are common amongst cardiac patients undergoing cardiac rehabilitation and are associated with poorer health, poor quality of life and higher economic costs. There is a paucity of effective psychological treatments and their provision in this care pathway. A new treatment that is proving highly effective in mental health settings, named metacognitive therapy (MCT), could offer a way forward.
