Nation's Leading Preventive Health Groups Seek to Save Lives by Transforming Americans' Approach to Health
Date:2/11/2008

>A recent ACPM report published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine also reported underutilization of aspirin. In addition, the report showed that the factor most strongly associated with aspirin use was a conversation about aspirin with a healthcare provider: aspirin use was 88% among respondents reporting such a discussion, compared to 17% for those who did not report a discussion. The report, which was based on a nationwide online survey of 1,299 adults ages 40 and older, revealed that aspirin is greatly underutilized, with 43% of increased-risk respondents saying they do not take aspirin regularly.(2)

"There is a clear correlation between having a conversation with a healthcare provider about the role of aspirin in preventing cardiovascular events and actually using aspirin to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke," said Dr. Parkinson. "The efforts by ACPM and Partnership aim to promote awareness and dialogue between patients and their healthcare providers about cardiovascular prevention strategies, including healthy behaviors and the potential role of aspirin therapy."
