Collaborative graduate-level teamwork on research: Circulating Health Information (Helping People Make Small, Incremental Lifestyle Changes to Improve their Heart Health)

Cardiovascular (CV) disease is the most prevalent chronic disease in Canada, with four in five Canadians having at least one CV risk factor. C-CHANGE harmonizes multiple guidelines to provide a standardized approach to managing patients at risk for CV disease and those with established CV disease. This project was sponsored by the C-CHANGE/Circulate Health team, including Dr. Sheldon Tobe and Dr. Rahul Jain from Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and Dr. Karim Keshavjee from Institute of Health Policy. The project focused on clinician and patient education via knowledge translation of the C-CHANGE guidelines. The goal of the project was to improve people heart health by helping them to make small and incremental lifestyle changes.
