    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    Cardiac rehabilitation programs represent opportunities to educate patients with cardiac disease about living wills and durable powers of attorney for health care.

    Only 9% (95% CI, 7% - 11%) offered educational sessions on advance directives and 17% distributed advance directive informational material.

    Education about cardiopulmonary resuscitation was provided by 27% (95% CI, 23% - 30%), but only 3% (95% CI, 2% - 4%) provided information on do-not-resuscitate topics. (...)
