Introduction: Rehabilitation was introduced back in 1950-60, and has been accepted as part of comprehensive care aimed at patients with cardiac diseases for more than 20 years. There is well established evidence that rehabilitation improves quality of life, and physical and psychological functional level in cardiac patients. Further rehabilitation reduces re-hospitalization, and mortality, and are considered a cost-effective intervention in cardiac care. Rehabilitation services aimed at cardiac patients have been developed trough out the world during the last decade. Despite solid evidence a number of organizational challenges still exist in order to ensure rehabilitation services as part of comprehensive cardiac care. Parallel it has been documented that rehabilitation improves quality of life among cancer survivors, and rehabilitation services are under the development within the field of cancer care. Objectives: The aim of this presentation is to give an overview of the development and status of rehabilitation aimed at patients with cardiac diseases and to draw parallels to development of rehabilitation as part of comprehensive cancer care. Methods: The presentation will be based on systematic literature review supplemented with data from organizational and economic analysis. Results: The results will be presented with focus on the complex intervention of rehabilitation and the effect of the intervention. Further results demonstration the patient-perspective, organizational challenges and economic aspects of rehabilitation will be presented in the context of cardiac and cancer care. Conclusions: Parallel situations within the field of rehabilitation can be identified across the diagnostic entities of cardiac disease and cancer. The presentation will discuss what to consider in the process of developing rehabilitation services within cancer care based on learning from cardiac care.
