Report’s Subject: This guide summarizes the evidence supporting best practices for preventing heart disease and stroke. Addressing chronic disease necessitates a variety of individual (e.g., behavioral interventions) and population-level strategies (e.g., system change). Quality healthcare systems, policies, and environmental approaches that promote healthy communities are critical to preventing and controlling chronic diseases and the risk factors accompanying them. Such methods are vital to creating environments where people can make healthier choices and better control their health.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) addresses chronic diseases in four domains: epidemiology and surveillance, environmental approaches, health care system interventions, and community-clinical linkages. The strategies in this guide are appropriate for healthcare system interventions (domain 3) and community-clinical collaboration (domain 4). In addition to evidence of effectiveness, we examine cross-cutting implementation considerations such as whether the strategies have been found effective in more than one setting with diverse populations and whether there is evidence of reducing health disparities. Other cross-cutting themes include whether the systems are cost-effective or demonstrate a return on investment, whether they have a policy or legal implications, and whether current guidelines or initiatives support them. Success stories are included to highlight how and where various groups have successfully implemented the strategy.
Report Purpose: The report aims to provide guidance on best practices for state and local public health activities addressing heart disease and stroke prevention. The guide’s goal is to serve as a resource guide for best practices in heart disease and stroke prevention programs that focus on health systems interventions (Domain 3) and community/clinical linkages (Domain 4).
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of deaths in the United States, equating to about 1 in every 4 deaths. In 2018, the CDC published updated best practice strategies to help decrease cardiovascular disease risks.

On this website, select one of the best practice strategies. Within each practice strategy, you will find three tabs: evidence of effectiveness, evidence of impact, and implementation considerations. In your initial post, use these key categories to address the following question:
How effective is this practice?
What kind of impact does this practice have?
What are the top considerations in implementing this strategy in your community?
