Mind CVD is a joint project between Heart Foundation, Stroke Foundation and Australian Centre for Heart Health which aims to ensure Australians have improved access to information and support for their psychological wellbeing during their recovery post cardiovascular disease (CVD) event. We are currently seeking input from health care professionals to identify needs, test assumptions and prioritise activities of our Mind CVD project.
The key objectives of community consultations will be to:
- understand the demand, gaps and needs of patients and carers in psychological support in CVD
- identify settings in which to introduce health professional and patient resources (e.g. in-patient, community etc.)
- identify current practice and gaps in screening activity for depression and anxiety in health settings
- identify barriers and opportunities to improve screening
- identify which products, resources and tools will most appropriately meet the needs of patients, carers, and health professionals.
By 2024, the project will deliver:
- information and resources for patients, survivors, families and carers
- information and training resources for health professionals
- improve functionality of the Heart Foundation and Stroke Foundation teams to support Australians living with CVD.
