OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The final results were announced at the occasion of the World Congress of Cardiology on 3 September 2006 in Barcelona.
They show that a nurse-led multi-disciplinary team approach, coupled with the support and involvement of a patient's partner and family, can yield significant lifestyle improvements and risk factor reductions in coronary patients and patients at risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
EUROACTION is the largest pan-European demonstration project which was conducted as a cluster randomized controlled trial. It covered 8 countries (Denmark, Spain, France, Sweden, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland and the United Kingdom) and 24 hospitals and general practice centres. Over 10,000 coronary and high risk patients and their family members were involved according to the targeted priority groups of the European Guidelines on CVD Prevention.
As said Professor David Wood, EuroAction Chairperson, "The principles of nurse-led multi-disciplinary teams, family-based lifestyle intervention as well as total cardiovascular risk management are all central features of EuroAction which has demonstrated the potential to significantly improve the quality of patient care. Moreover, having run our prevention programme in busy hospitals and general practice settings, these results are directly applicable to everyday clinical practice".
Several publications are planned in scientific and specialist journals in the coming months. EuroAction has opened a way by showing how the European Guidelines on CVD Prevention are applicable in clinical practice.
