The Angioplasty Plan can be used before and after angioplasty


It's a brief cognitive-behavioural rehabilitation programme based on the Angina Plan.


It will answer your patients' questions such as:

  • What caused my heart disease?
  • What is an angioplasty?
  • How do I get ready for the angioplasty?
  • What will happen to me during the angioplasty?
  • What will I be able to do afterwards?
  • How can I prevent more heart disease?

The Angioplasty Plan includes:

  • Risk factor reduction
  • Goal setting and pacing for activities
  • Stress reduction
  • A relaxation programme on audio CD
  • Dealing with unhelpful beliefs
  • Helps to prevent maladaptive coping

The Angioplasty Plan can be facilitated with no further training by people who are Angina Plan facilitators. We do suggest that those who are not based in a centre where PCI takes place should forge links with that centre and be conversant with the full patient pathway.
