 education program for PVD patients

Some of my colleagues are developing an education program for patients
who have been hospitalized for periphral vascular disease.  This includes
those who have had amputations, bypass surgery or infections.  The
aim of the education program is to help the patients avoid a recurrence
of their problem.  Thus it will focus on lifestyle modification -
smoking cessation, proper nutrition and exercise.  

I would like to know if there are any such programs already in use.
Most (all?) hospitals have programs for coronary heart disease but
we can't find any on peripheral vascular disease.  

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.
