Cardiovascular disease risk factor reduction and the occupational health nurse.

Academic Article


  • The occupational health nurse should be attuned to issues and research regarding prevention of CVD. Risk reduction programs in industry should adhere to the recommendations of groups such as the Adult Treatment Panel of the National Cholesterol Education Program, the Joint National Committee on Detection, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure, and the American Health Association. Despite significant reductions in CVD mortality, continued research is needed to further our knowledge of CVD risk factors among high risk populations.
