Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention (JCRP) 

The Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention (JCRP), the official journal of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation and the Canadian Association of Cardiac Rehabilitation, is the only professional journal for the entire cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation team. Dedicated to the improvement of multidisciplinary clinical practice, JCRP provides high quality, current information to practitioners in the field. Original, peer-reviewed manuscripts cover all aspects of cardiac, peripheral vascular, and pulmonary rehabilitation. 

Changes to AACVPR Member JCRP Subscriptions

Any AACVPR membership gives you a free subscription to the Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention (JCRP). Beginning this year, JCRP is moving to a digital-only format, as part of AACVPR’s efforts to “go green” and reallocate important resources to other strategic initiatives. Your membership dues will still cover unlimited access to the Journal online, but there will be an additional $15 fee associated with receiving a printed version. You will be able to add the $15 print journal subscription on when renewing your AACVPR membership, or you can email aacvpr@aacvpr.org to be invoiced for the print subscription fee. 

Join AACVPR now to receive JCRP online access and gain access to other membership benefits! If you would like to purchase a subscription to JCRP as a non-member, you'll pay $249 a year.

Home based, medically
