We also welcome translation requests (see available translations first), and opportunities to collaborate to mitigate identified barriers.
A revised version of the scale is under psychometric validation. The English CRBS-R is available here.
There is a self-report version of the scale available for patients (inpatients or outpatients) available here, with potential mitigation strategies for top barriers: https://globalcardiacrehab.com/For-Patients.
