Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE The Healthy Options Feasibility Study
Official Title  ICMJE The Effectiveness of CVD Risk Profiles When Used by Allied Health Care Providers (HCP) Within a "Groupe de Médecine de Famille": The Healthy Options Feasibility Study.
Brief Summary The investigators hypothesize that having health care providers other than physicians within a "Groupe de Médecine de Famille" conduct cardiovascular risk assessments and teach lifestyle interventions to primary prevention patients will increase the likelihood that patients will adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles. These objectives will be supported by providing subjects with a cardiovascular risk profile estimating the subject's risk of cardiovascular disease and teaching them how to use the resources related to lifestyle changes available on the Web site.
