Groundbreaking JACC Series Examines Top Eight CV Risk Factors and How to Prevent Them
An innovative eight-part Cardiovascular Health Promotion Series published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) provides health care professionals with an in-depth examination of the eight risk factors and behaviors that contribute most to cardiovascular disease development.
Highlighting the importance of a preventive approach rather than a focus on the treatment of symptoms, each state-of-the-art review assesses the pathophysiological effects of each risk factor, personal and social contributors, key factors that help end risk-related behavior, and competencies for providers. The series addresses diet, tobacco, cholesterol, blood pressure, psychological health, weight, physical activity and blood sugar.
