Prof. Ron T. Van Domburg
Interview: 30th of August, 11:00 am
University: Erasmus MC, Rotterdam
Position: Clinical Epidemiologist, Associate Professor at Department of Cardiology, Erasmus Medical Center
Personal details: Prof. Ron van Domburg has been a researcher at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam for the past 36 years. His final project before retiring is to present the study „OPTICARE - Benefits of the OPTImal CArdiac REhabilitation trial: a randomized, controlled superiority trial of an expanded educational and behavioral intervention”.
Most of the patients who benefit from cardiac rehabilitation (CR) are those who have survived an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The OPTICARE trial evaluates the impact of two advanced and extended CR programs that are designed to stimulate permanent adaption of a heart-healthy lifestyle, compared with current standard CR, in ACS patients.
Of course, I’ll try my best to have the most relevant questions answered in our interview. Nevertheless, there might be something specific you would like to ask Ron van Domburg. Make suggestions for interview questions in the comment section below.
