The plan is to improve the lifestyle of coronary patients: We want to introduce comprehensive care to the patients with cardiovascular disease, who currently do not have appropriate facilities or teams of experts to turn to. The project intends to update the current exercise programs according to novel guidelines. Based on the analyses of nutritional diaries, body composition analyses and serum markers measurements, the participants receive individual diet plans. Two workshops have been organized (cognitive training and relaxation techniques). Special care was given to a group of patients that does not currently exercise – we analyzed the possible barriers and presented the suggestions for improvement. 

Project SRCE is co-financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport of Slovenia and by EU from the European Social Fund.
