Chronic heart failure has emerged as an important public health problem. The consequent increase in the sanitary services has induced an increased consumption of financial resources and conditioned the need to investigate new sanitary models that guarantee, by integrating the inpatient and outpatient health care delivery, the continuity of health assistance. Cardiac rehabilitation in the context of a day-hospital Heart Failure Unit allows for the organization of a rehabilitation program including various health approaches aimed at guaranteeing a multidisciplinary program and the relief continuity. This article describes the experience developed in the Heart Failure Unit of Montescano.
