Study Description
Brief Summary:
Cardiovascular diseases remain the main cause of mortality in Canada. While effective interventions are available for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease,there continue to be gaps between the potential reduction in risk that could be achieved by effectively managing these risk factors and levels of risk factor control currently in clinical practice. This study will evaluate the ability of a different model of risk factor care using other health providers assisting family doctors, along with information aids for patients and health professionals,to achieve better levels of cardiovascular risk fatror control in adults.
