Practice Portal

You can view topics in any order, but we encourage you to work with your practice facilitator as you determine your priorities. You do not need to view all the modules at once. However, we advise that you view modules before working on a particular topic. A couple of tips:

  • We recommend watching blood pressure measurement before blood pressure treatment.
  • Similarly, we recommend you watch Tobacco Use Assessment before Tobacco Treatment.
  • Cardiovascular disease risk calculation should be viewed before the Statin or Aspirin topics.
  • If you want to know more, please reach out to the Evidence Team by sending us your questions.

The content on this portal was developed and curated by the Heart Health NOW! Evidence Team, which includes physicians and subject matter experts at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The intent of this portal is to aid you and your practice as you work to improve Heart Health NOW!.
Each topic includes an evidence summary, along with supplementary resources. All topics, except the Secondary Prevention topic, focus on primary prevention of cardiovascular disease. All evidence summary videos are under 20 minutes long. We recommend you and your practice members view the summaries as a group so you can discuss the content with each other.
