Series overview
Cardiovascular disease remains a very significant issue within the population, being a significant problem with morbidity and mortality in our communities. The recently published 10 year plan hold the prevention of cardiovascular disease and the care for those with symptoms. Within the current Quality and Outcome Frame work cardiovascular risk reduction and intervention is significant, from the controlling risk factors such as blood pressure and glycemic control to the appropriate secondary prevention of atherosclerotic issues and heart failure.

Session description
This session will discuss the size of the problem of CVD and how to reduce the risk. This will start with those simple lifestyle issues but will work through the issues around blood pressure control and the better standards of care and poor glycemic control and changes in how we may wish to change our attitudes to which medication when.
