A cardiovascular disease (CVD) screening programme, "Healthy Heart", was launched in 2009 in 34 community pharmacies within one company across Ireland. It included lifestyle assessment and measurements of blood pressure, waist circumference, BMI, random glucose levels and cholesterol levels to examine the lifestyle risk-factors and the CHD risks.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
