Expert Advisory Group

Scientific experience within the field of cardiologic rehabilitation is limited in Denmark, and there is no national experience from rehabilitation of complex cardiac diseases. The cooperation with international experts is therefore crucial for the immplementation of high-level research. A broad evaluation furthermore requires experts from other research areas.
