The ESC Handbook of Preventive Cardiology is a 'how-to' manual for busy healthcare professionals. Complementing the 2012 Joint European Guidelines on cardiovascular disease prevention and in line with recommendations from the European Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation, it is an invaluable source of tools and skills to assist with the delivery of effective cardiovascular disease prevention. While acknowledging that cardiovascular disease prevention efforts must be complemented by societal and community based strategies, this handbook focuses on practical strategies that can be used in clinical settings. Concise and easily accessible, it guides readers through the patient and family pathway - from patient identification, recruitment of the patient and family, assessing lifestyle and risk factors, to managing lifestyle change, reducing risk factors, and compliance with cardio-protective drug therapies. Information on how to deliver a health promotion workshop programme and run a supervised exercise programme is also included. Previously published as Preventive Cardiology: A practical manual and now fully revised and updated and packed with checklists and diagrams, such as risk estimation charts, The ESC Handbook of Preventive Cardiology helps health workers contribute in real and practical ways to the prevention of artherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. This print edition of The ESC Handbook of Preventive Cardiology, Putting Prevention into Practice comes with access to the online version on Oxford Medicine Online, for as long as the edition is published by Oxford University Press.

Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death across Europe, accounting for over four million deaths each year. The main objectives of preventive cardiology are to increase the duration and improve the quality of life. This indispensible manual provides practical advice on how to structure and run a preventive cardiology programme, addressing the prevention of cardiovascular disease in clinical practice through lifestyle, risk factor and therapeutic management. The approach described in this manual is for patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, those at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease and their families. It is written by the multidisciplinary team who coordinated the EUROACTION demonstration project in preventive cardiology in 8 countries in Europe, and provides a comprehensive lifestyle and cardiovascular risk factor management strategy . It is directed at doctors, nurses, dieticians, physiotherapists, physical activity specialists and other disciplines involved in the preventive and rehabilitative care of these patients. The manual takes the professional through the patient and family pathway - from patient identification, recruitment of patient and family, comprehensive assessment of lifestyle and cardiovascular risk factors, to management of lifestyle change: stopping smoking, making healthy food choices, becoming physically active, achieving a healthy weight and shape and management of blood pressure, blood lipids and blood glucose to healthy levels. A programme model is described which includes both group and individual one-to-one approaches to care. The role of each member of the multi-disciplinary team is described together with the tools available to achieve lifestyle and risk factor change.
