Clinical Practice Guidelines for Prevention
|AHA and ACC are pleased to announce the only comprehensive series of new cardiovascular prevention guidelines and advisories for the assessment and management of hypertension, cardiovascular risk, lifestyle modifications that reduce risk, management of elevated blood cholesterol, and management of increased body weight in adults. The guidelines are based on rigorous, comprehensive, systematic evidence reviews originally sponsored by the NHLBI. The ACC and AHA collaborated with professional organizations to finalize these AHA/ACC cardiovascular prevention guidelines and advisories, and stakeholder organizations were invited to review and endorse the final documents.|
To support the implementation of these guidelines, the American Heart Association is making a series of web tools available for download now.
Narrated slidesets on the content of each guideline are available at learn.heart.org:
