Primary care resources for CVD prevention and better respiratory care

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic primary care teams have had to change ways of working to keep patients and staff safe. UCLPartners have designed a series of resources to help clinicians deliver their care for patients with cardiovascular and respiratory conditions in the new world where a lot of care is delivered virtually.

Resources are now available for high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, asthma and COPD (with atrial fibrillation and lipid management coming soon).

The resources include:

  • Search tools to risk stratify and prioritise patients
  • Pathways and protocols to deliver care at home and use of the wider workforce (e.g. healthcare assistants, link workers and pharmacists)
  • Digital resources to support remote management and self-management
  • Training that includes motivational interviewing and health coaching.
