P.A.D. Exercise Training Toolkit :
A Guide for Health Care Professionals

This toolkit was developed to allow cardiac rehabilitation and other exercise and rehabilitation health care professionals to work within their communities to improve access to supervised exercise programs for people with intermittent claudication resulting from peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Clinical practice guidelines and performance measures for adults with PAD stress the importance of supervised exercise to improve functional capacity, decrease symptoms and achieve systemic risk-reduction beneits.

The toolkit includes information for exercise and rehabilitation professionals to implement appropriate and safe supervised exercise programs. It also includes practical tools such as sample brochures plus participant and staff education materials. This toolkit was developed jointly by the Vascular Disease Foundation (VDF) and the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
