Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of Predicted Cardiovascular Risk [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Knowledge of the risk factors and the adhesion to pharmacology treatment; Reduction of the modified risk factors in the previous knowledge of patients and their adhesion; [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 74
Study Start Date: January 2007
Study Completion Date: July 2011
Primary Completion Date: May 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lifestyle counseling

Two groups:

  • control - conventional care
  • intervention - systematic education in the reduction of the risk estimate to cardiovascular events
Behavioral: Systematic education in the reduction of the risk estimate to cardiovascular events
Systematic education during 4 assessment throughout one year

Detailed Description:

Assess 184 (two groups) patients during four nursing visits for a 1-year period and compare to a group of patients submitted to conventional treatment. We will evaluate the impact of systematic nursing orientations in the reduction of predicted cardiovascular risk in patients with coronary artery disease.
