Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Cardiovascular disease and stroke are the major cause of death and disability in the United States. It is estimated that the cost of cardiovascular disease is $298 billion annually including health care costs and lost productivity. In addition local community needs assessment data demonstrated that heart disease remains the number one leading cause of death and disability for local residents. This intervention program addresses the following Healthy People 2010 identified focus areas, physical activity, overweight and obesity, tobacco use, mental health and access to health care. The goals of this program are to identify employees with undiagnosed hypertension, hyperlipidemia and hyperglycemia. Overall it seeks to implement a strategy to provide healthier and more productive employees by providing education about cardiovascular disease and decrease the overall 10 year risk of a cardiovascular event and eventually lower the overall health care costs. Health screenings and the Framingham tool is utilized to identify individuals with a 10% risk or greater of having a cardiovascular event in the next 10 years. These employees are offered the opportunity to enroll in a nurse managed intervention program. Individual counseling and group education is offered. In 2004, 962 employees participated with 55 identified with a 10% or greater risk. Each individual enrolled in the nurse case managed program and 84% of this high risk population participated in follow up visits throughout the year. Among the individuals who were high risk in 2004, 37% were no longer high risk in 2005. Due to the success of this program it is now being implemented in 23 congregations in our Faith Community Nursing. This program represents over 25,000 families in our area. In addition a $24,000 grant has been awarded to implement the program in a local community of Hispanic residents. The use of trained promotoras will provide the follow up and education program.
