High blood pressure, elevated blood glucose and high cholesterol are related to the increased risk of stroke and heart disease. Many studies have shown that this risk can be significantly reduced by lowering blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol levels.

Through a collaborative effort between Calgary Safeway pharmacists and Calgary Health Region family physician PCN's, U-CHAMP will deliver a program to assist in the identification and management of people with elevated blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol and through this effort, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke in the urban Calgary population aged 18-85 years.

Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • Proportion of individuals that obtain both a baseline and end of program full lipid panel [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Change in Framingham Global Cardiovascular Risk score (in those participants that do not have known vascular disease or diabetes and have a recorded baseline and end-of-study full lipid panel). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Proportion of individuals that have changes in drug therapy (new medication and/or dosage increase). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
