Logo UHasselt Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action






In a rapidly digitalising world all modalities known to cardiologists and cardiovascular care institutes are transforming into a digital counterpart. The COVID-pandemic has forced us into a higher gear in implementing the latest tools. Worldwide many centres have offered at least a short period of telerehabilitation.

This course intends to highlight the key possibilities of digital tools for application in preventive cardiology and to apply digital technology to set-up a telerehabilitation program. Digital specialists are brought together to inform you about the latest applications and their personal experiences in applying them.

Course format

Online course. Sessions will be given live at a preset time with a possibility for discussion and interaction. Sessions will be recorded and can be rewatched after the session.
The course will be interactive. Preparatory literature and tasks will be provided. The sessions will be partly presentation and partly discussion with participants and moderators. At the end of the course an exam will take place.
