Cardiovascular disease prevention guide

A new practical guide will help primary care teams overcome limitations created by COVID-19 and continue to deliver quality cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention services.

Patients are likely to have had less contact with healthcare professionals, leading to lower detection rates for CVD risk factors such as hypertension and atrial fibrillation. Symptoms of stroke, TIA or heart attack may also have gone unreported.  The guidance – produced in a collaboration between the Oxford Academic Health Science Network and the Getting It Right First Time programme – is co-authored with the Primary Care Cardiovascular Society and aims to signpost primary care professionals to the right resources.
