Best Practices for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Programs
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and women in the United States. High blood pressure and high cholesterol are two leading risk factors for heart disease—and most people with these conditions do not have them under control.
The Best Practices Guide for CVD Prevention describes and summarizes scientific evidence behind 8 effective strategies for lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol levels that can be implemented in health care systems and that involve community-clinical links. The guide is a resource for state and local health departments, decision makers, public health professionals, and other stakeholders interested in using proven strategies to improve cardiovascular health.
The 8 strategies that are highlighted in this guide were carefully reviewed and selected through a process that is described in the full PDF version of the Best Practices Guide for CVD Prevention Programs.
