Canadian Cardiovascular Harmonized National Guidelines Endeavour (C-CHANGE) guideline for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease in primary care: 2018 update
This guideline is directed to primary health care providers caring for Canadian adults who have or are at risk of developing chronic cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, heart failure and stroke, and the risk factors for these conditions, including smoking, obesity and physical inactivity. The purpose of the C-CHANGE guideline is to bring together a comprehensive set of recommendations drawn from the nine participating guideline groups applicable to the care of people with multiple comorbidities. The aim is also to do this with sufficient rigour that health care practitioners and patients have confidence in the C-CHANGE process, as well as in the guidelines from the nine participating groups.
