ICA-CHAMP: Indo-Central Asian Cardiovascular Health Assessment and Management Program (ICA-CHAMP)
Recruitment status was: Active, not recruiting
Research has shown that the presence of heart disease and stroke is higher in the Indo-Asian population compared to other ethno-cultural groups. This may be due to multiple reasons such as a higher presence of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and lower levels of physical activity.
This program will bring together the Calgary Indo-Central-Asian communities and the Calgary Healthcare community to help reduce the rate of heart disease and stroke through a supportive, culturally-sensitive program that is community-based through the following steps:
- Increase awareness of heart disease and stroke through education among the Calgary Indo-Central-Asian population.
- Identify early, the risk factors related to heart disease and stroke through screening programs.
- Provide appropriate follow-up care to the population at risk for heart disease and stroke.

- Baseline and one year change in blood pressure and total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and TC/HDL ratio (High and low to moderate risk program participants) [ Time Frame: one year ]
- Cardiovascular risk profile and risk scores (Joint British Societies Cardiovascular Disease Risk Prediction Chart) of all participants at baseline and upon completion of the High Risk Assessment and Calgary Health Region Multicultural education programs. [ Time Frame: one year ]
- Baseline profiles of attendees versus no-shows at both High Risk Assessment clinics and Calgary Health Region Multicultural education programs [ Time Frame: one year ]

- Proportion of High Risk Assessment Clinic attendees identified as having occult Coronary Artery Disease and requiring angioplasty and/or Coronary Artery Bypass Graft. [ Time Frame: one year ]
- Post Hoc variation of the Joint British Societies Cardiovascular Disease Risk Prediction Chart versus ETHRISK [ Time Frame: one year ]
- Participant and community leader/volunteer satisfaction with the program [ Time Frame: one year ]
- Participant opinion regarding usefulness of the culturally-sensitive educational information provided at the screening session. [ Time Frame: one year ]

Other: High risk assessment
For all participants screened in the program, a cardiovascular risk profile is determined using information from the cardiovascular health history, blood pressure and cholesterol measurements, and The British Joint Societies Risk Prediction chart. All participants predicted to be at high risk are referred for assessment to a High Risk clinic in the community via the family doctor.
low to moderate risk
Other: Low to moderate risk
For all participants screened in the program, a cardiovascular risk profile is determined using information from the cardiovascular health history, blood pressure and cholesterol measurements, and The British Joint Societies Risk Prediction chart. All low to -moderate risk participants are directed to self-refer to the Calgary Health Region Multicultural education classes.
