Description:

Croí MyAction is a cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention programme, that targets individuals and their families at high risk of developing heart disease, stroke, pripheral artery disease and diabetes in a community based setting.Croí MyAction offers high-risk participants a 12 - 16 week intensive lifestyle programme, with follow up at one-year, working across risk factors such as cholesterol, blood pressure, physical inactivity, weight and smoking. Based on the stage of change, realistic and achievable goals are set with the individual and these goals are reviewed on a weekly basis.  This programme is protocol driven and outcomes are measured.  To date over 350 families (520 individuals) have been referred to the programme and significant results have been achieved in relation to diet, exercise levels, weight and waist circumference.  These substantial results observed in the short term (16-weeks) are being sustained at 1-year follow-up, demonstrating the longer term impact of the programme. Detailed results are available at www.croi.ie
