Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: The aim of this review is to assess the benefits and harms of rehabilitation programmes consisting of a physical exercise component that focuses on increasing exercise capacity, and may include a psychoeducational intervention that focuses on improving mental health and the patient’s self management skills, compared with no intervention or treatment as usual in adults who currently have AF or have been treated for AF.
