Brief Summary:
This study was to examine the knowledge level regarding cardiovascular disease risk factors among participants of varying ages. Then to see if there was any type of previous education that led to greater knowledge levels.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cardiovascular Risk Factor Other: Survey tool to assess CVD risk factor knowledge Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study used a survey tool that assessed the participants' method(s) of prior education regarding cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors. Then the participant was asked eleven questions regarding CVD risk factors which tested their knowledge of those factors. Analysis was done to evaluate overall knowledge level of each group and compare the knowledge levels across age groups. Then analysis was done to see if any method(s) led to better knowledge level within and/or between age groups.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Children in grades 4 or 5
This group was comprised of participants that were in grades 4 or 5 in school.
Other: Survey tool to assess CVD risk factor knowledge
The survey tool was used to assess the participant's knowledge level and their previous methods of education regarding cardiovascular disease risk factors.

Active Comparator: Adolescents in grades 10 or 11
This group was comprised of participants that were in grades 10 or 11 in school.
Other: Survey tool to assess CVD risk factor knowledge
The survey tool was used to assess the participant's knowledge level and their previous methods of education regarding cardiovascular disease risk factors.

Active Comparator: College Age Participants
This group was comprised of participants that were sophomores or juniors in college/university that were non-health career majors.
Other: Survey tool to assess CVD risk factor knowledge
The survey tool was used to assess the participant's knowledge level and their previous methods of education regarding cardiovascular disease risk factors.

Active Comparator: Cardiac Rehab Adults
This group was comprised of participants that were adults over the age of 40 that had completed a phase II cardiac rehabilitation program.
Other: Survey tool to assess CVD risk factor knowledge
The survey tool was used to assess the participant's knowledge level and their previous methods of education regarding cardiovascular disease risk factors.

Active Comparator: General Adults
This group was comprised of participants that were adults over the age of 40 that had never attended an outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program before.
Other: Survey tool to assess CVD risk factor knowledge
The survey tool was used to assess the participant's knowledge level and their previous methods of education regarding cardiovascular disease risk factors.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cardiovascular disease risk factor knowledge [ Time Frame: 10-15 minutes ]
    How well did the participant know the risk factors for cardiovascular disease. This was determined by using a survey tool that was shown to have internal validity using Chronbach alpha score. The survey had 11 questions regarding CVD risk factors and asked the participant if they felt the statement was completely true, somewhat true, neutral, somewhat untrue, or completely untrue. Survey scores were determined out of 55 total points.

  2. Method(s) of education [ Time Frame: 10-15 minutes ]
    What methods of education regarding CVD risk factors did the participant previously have. The participant was asked various methods of previous education. These included school for younger participants, cardiac rehab for that group, TV, media, Internet, community groups, health care provider, family member experience, or family member discussion. The were tabulated individually and then comparisons were made within and between groups for methods of education used. Then these were correlated to survey scores too. These comparisons were made with chi-square with post-hoc tests, MANOVAs, and unpaired t-tests.
