Learning Outcomes

In this module you will learn what cardiovascular disease actually means and how it is diagnosed. Family history, especially of first degree relatives, is especially significant when it comes to risk, management and prognosis of heart and blood vessel disease. There are many actions you can take if you have been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, giving you more control over your prognosis and quality of life. Living with any chronic condition can be debilitating and draining, but if you are well informed, you can make more appropriate decisions that can improve your life as well as your loved ones.
