From cardiologists to physical therapists to nurses there is a team approach needed to provide cardiac patients the care they need for treatment. Keeping that care going even after a cardiac event has passed has been a growing focus of the field in recent years.

Gregory D. Lewis, MD, from Massachusetts General Hospital discussed this topic and more on the subject during the American Heart Association's annual meeting in Orlando.
