What is MULTIFIT?
MULTIFIT is a highly effective rehabilitation program for cardiac patients. It can help you feel better and improve your confidence. This program was designed and researched by Stanford’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program and Kaiser Permanente. You work on reducing your multiple coronary risk factors so you become fit. Hence the name, MULTIFIT.
A cardiac nurse will be your personal care manager for up to one year. You receive encouragement and guidance in making lifestyle changes. This is done through scheduled phone calls and progress report mailings. During this time, you will continue to see your primary care physician for medical and follow-up care.
In the MULTIFIT program, your rehabilitation is done at home with the support of your family and friends. You will be introduced to information that will assist you in reducing your risk factors.
