Objective: The objective of this study was to determine time trends in the implementation of European guidelines on the management of cardiovascular disease prevention in people at high cardiovascular risk. Opinion statement: Passive dissemination of guidelines in isolation is generally ineffective and results in only small changes in practice.

Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing behavioural risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol using population-wide strategies. People with cardiovascular disease or who are at high cardiovascular risk (due to the presence of one or more risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia or already established disease) need early detection and management using counselling and medicines, as appropriate. What are cardiovascular diseases?

This book is based on the European Guidelines on CVD Prevention (formulated by eight societies). It covers prevention strategies, risk factors, detection, management of risk, and therapeutic targets. It gives the rationale for the prevention of CVD along with practical clinical strategies across the spectrum of clinical care. The starting point is patients with symptomatic atherosclerotic disease, such as coronary artery disease, stroke and peripheral arterial disease. The next patient group is those who are apparently healthy, but at high risk of developing CVD.

Each title in the Rapid Reference series provides the reader with authoritative and accessible information from a clinical expert in the field, to assist with treatment decisions. Each title includes standard core content (epidemiology, management, therapy) combined with the additional information―such as FAQs and patient organizations―needed by the primary care practitioners to provide effective patient care. The books also include drug listings, clinical trials, information on future developments, and web site listings, to keep the reader up to speed with new developments and to extend their knowledge of the disease area. Titles in the series focus on chronic conditions seen most often in the primary care setting. With patients becoming better informed about the nature and management of their conditions, RAPID REFERENCE is a timely new series that offers the primary care practitioners easy access to the best information for patient care and management. Expert information succinctly written for ease of use.Abundant use of bulleted lists and short tables, for quick access to comparative information.Presents evidence-based sources for practice where available, either through research or best-practice guidelines.Frequently Asked Questions chapter helps practitioners prepare for patient visits and provide better patient care.Drugs appendix lists available drugs, with contraindications and side effects.Useful addresses and websites appendix provide additional resources for both the physician and patient.
