Abstract

The report from the EUROACTION Study Group demonstrates that a nurse-coordinated, multidisciplinary, family-based program results in improvements in patients' lifestyle, control of blood pressure, and use of cardioprotective drugs, when compared with standard care. The results of the study support the need for organized and systematic approaches to individualized cardiovascular risk reduction in patients with, or at high risk for, coronary heart disease. The EUROACTION program is an example of effectiveness research, which aims to develop and validate strategies to implement interventions previously shown to be efficacious.
