Lifestyle Outcomes of Absolute Risk Feedback: A Randomised Trial of a General Practice Based Behavioural Intervention (LOAF)

Much cardiovascular disease could be prevented if GPs could encourage their patients to improve their diet, physical activity and smoking behaviour. Communication of risk to patients may change their behaviour but the effectiveness of individualised cardiovascular risk feedback in general practice is not yet known. This study aims to determine whether feedback of their cardiovascular risk to patients in general practice can improve lifestyle behaviours associated with cardiovascular disease.

This project is a participant based study
