Heart Week 2019 focuses on encouraging more people to understand their risk factors for heart disease and take the right steps to reduce this risk.
Heart Week is an opportunity for health professionals and the Australian public to start a conversation about heart health and the steps needed to reduce the risk of heart disease.
In 2019, Heart Week is celebrated from 28 April–4 May. It will focus on the importance of having a heart health check.
In particular we are focusing on:
- Heart health checks and what they involve
- Which patients should have a heart health check and why
- What steps patients can take to manage their risk of heart disease and stroke.
