Heart Healthy Toolbox

The Heart Healthy Toolbox

The Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association (PCNA) is proud to make available A Heart Healthy Toolbox: Lifestyle Change Tools for Health Care Professionals and Their Patients, a compilation of resources to support heart healthy lifestyle education for adult patients in both the cardiology and primary care settings.  PCNA recognizes the critical roles that healthy nutrition, physical activity and exercise, avoidance of tobacco and successful management of stress play in cardiovascular health. We also recognize the challenge of communicating evidence-based information and, more importantly, coaching patients with behavior change, in the space of a brief clinical encounter. We hope that these printed tools will amplify your efforts.
