Secondary Care - Prescribing Lifestyle Adjustments for Cardiovascular Health (S-PLAC 2)

2019-10-15 11:11:32 | BioPortfolio


Prescribing lifestyle changes to patients who have cardiovascular disease (CVD) may be an extremely cost effective mechanism of improving health individually and for the NHS. Positive lifestyle changes such as improved diet, increased physical activity, quitting smoking and reducing alcohol consumption have been proven to reform the health status of individuals with CVD. S-PLAC 2 is a phase II study to determine the efficacy of a lifestyle prescription (L℞) in patients and healthcare practitioners in a secondary care setting (i.e. hospital clinics/wards).
