The November issue of JCRP leads off with four Invited Reviews for a Special Section Focused on Prevention. We thank the authors for sharing their insights in these timely reviews. I also want to acknowledge and thank our two Guest Editors for their work on this Special Section: Dr. Diann Gaalema and Dr. Charles German. Both Drs. Gaalema and German serve on the JCRP Editorial Board and managed the editorial process for these Invited Reviews. This issue also contains two additional review articles, one related to adults with asthma participating in exercise training programs and the second on antidepressant pharmacotherapy in patients eligible for Cardiac Rehabilitation. The Cardiac Rehabilitation section includes three additional articles including depressive symptoms after acute myocardial infarctions, benefits of an intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation program, and a statewide approach to improved participation in Cardiac Rehabilitation programs. There is also one article related to peripheral artery disease which presents interesting findings related to quality of life and one report related to exercise testing in the Prevention section. The issue also has five interesting and timely Research Letters and our standard feature of a Literature Update for both Pulmonary and Cardiac Rehabilitation.
I am confident you will find this issue contains information that will be helpful to both researchers and clinicians.
I encourage you to use the link in the Journal Info tab above to learn a bit more about the Journal. JCRP was the first, and remains the only, professional journal dedicated to improving multidisciplinary clinical practice and expanding research evidence specific to both Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (and now also to prevention of cardiopulmonary diseases). We welcome all researchers that are actively working to expand the evidence base for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation to consider JCRP as the best option to publish their work.
As always, I encourage you to use the links on the web site to share these excellent articles with your colleagues whether by traditional email or using our social media platforms of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Enjoy the November issue and best wishes for a successful end to the 2022 year.
