Farmers Have Hearts: Cardiovascular Health Programme
Farmers Have Hearts: Cardiovascular Health Programme - Detailed and Summary Impact Reports.
This report is a follow-up to the ‘Farmers Have Heart Cardiovascular Health Programme – Detailed Baseline Report’ (van Doorn et al., 2020). That report provided an overview of the baseline cardiovascular health status, and a summary of sociodemographic and farming characteristics, of the farmers participating in the Farmers Have Hearts Cardiovascular Health Programme (FHH-CHP).
This report assesses the impact of FHH-CHP on the cardiovascular health of participating farmers. The assessment comprises three aspects; evaluating the extent of health behaviour change (HBC), assessing follow up use of GP services if advised to do so by the nurse during the baseline health check as well as analysing the effectiveness of the HBC intervention group in comparison to the usual care group.
