Join CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, for a 1-hour webinar on a new resource for state and local health departments that highlights evidence-based practices for CVD prevention. In response to overwhelming demand for more information after the December 2017 Coffee Break, this presentation will take a deeper dive into the content of the Best Practices Guide and walk listeners through a demo of the guide in its PDF and web-based versions.

To facilitate the translation of research to practice, CDC developed an easy-to-navigate “Best Practices Guide for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Programs.” The BPG highlights eight effective strategies, backed by research evidence, that fall within two of the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion’s four key domains for chronic disease prevention: Health Care System Interventions (Domain 3) and Community Programs that are linked to Clinical Services (Domain 4). The Best Practices Guide was created as a resource for state and local health departments looking to implement evidence-based practices for CVD prevention. For each strategy, it provides a high-level overview of the research evidence surrounding the strategy’s ability to reduce blood pressure and/or cholesterol, reach priority populations and/or reduce health disparities, and cost effectiveness. It also provides links to implementation resources and provides a “story from the field” describing a setting in which the strategy has been successfully implemented. The strategies highlighted in the guide include: implementing team-based care, elevating pharmacy involvement in care, engaging community health workers, activating patient self-management, implementing clinical decision support systems, and reducing patients’ out of pocket costs for medications.
