ESC announces new initiatives for workplace heart health programs
Date:9/24/2010

Sophia Antipolis, 24 September 2010: Workplace wellness programmes play a vital role in preventing cardiovascular disease and stroke. This year's World Heart Day(1) theme is to encourage employers and employees to take simple steps to improve heart-health in the workplace. The European Society of Cardiology(2) is keen to support this theme, which coincides with the upcoming launch of two major initiatives at the next EuroPRevent Meeting(3) in April 2011 in Geneva.

Pantaleo Giannuzzi, President of the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention & Rehabilitation (EACPR)(4) , said, "Since work represents the major activity of all our lives it offers a really valuable opportunity to promote cardiovascular health on a daily basis for large numbers of the population."

It is already well established that 80% of cardiovascular disease can be prevented through strategies including healthy nutrition, smoking cessation, physical activity and stress management. "But it has been hard to make the transition from research to prevention in every day practice," said Martin Halle, chair elect of the Exercise, Basic and Translational Research Section of EACPR. "Moving our efforts into the workplace should help us translate guidelines into real world situations and reach the general public."

When work place programmes are successful, he added, their influence extends beyond individual workers to family members who are exposed to healthy life styles.

Many advantages are to be had by companies who invest in workplace wellness programmes including lower rates of absenteeism, and reduced prevalence of chronic disease. "Promoting heart health helps companies stand out as good quality employers and helps them retain workers," said Giannuzzi, from the S. Maugeri Foundation, Scientific Institute for Clinical Care and Research (Veruno, Italy), adding that it also improves people's work capacity and productivity.
