Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the world. It is largely preventable, and can certainly be delayed by attention to established risk factors. Primary care is the natural and most appropriate location for cardiovascular prevention. This accessible and practical reference and everyday manual covers the organisation of prevention services, estimating risk and using guidelines, and examines each key area with extensive use of clinical case studies. It provides the information necessary to answer the concerns of patients on areas such as cholesterol, diet, exercise, alcohol, smoking and medication. General practitioners, practice nurses, physiotherapists, dieticians and pharmacists will find this book to be an essential aid to their daily work.
