The Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) 2002 acknowledge the multiprofessional membership of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) teams required to deliver comprehensive CR. The clinical groups chiefly involved in delivering CR in the UK are nurses followed by physiotherapists. The participation, skills and attributes of physiotherapists in the UK have already been identified. This paper reports on the findings of a similar survey for nurses. The survey was piloted and then sent to all registered centres on the British Association for Cardiac Rehabilitation (BACR) and the Scottish CR Interest Group databases (CRIGS).
