These consultation videos are focussed on dietary measures that can be taken to support cardiovascular health. They assume that the patient has no cardiovascular issues such as familial hypercholesterolaemia, structural issues etc. As you will see in the videos and the supporting patient handouts it is imperative to ensure the patient understands healthy eating overall and the 5 point plan (as discussed in the diabetes module) as this is the base for good health.
In the videos, we assume that the patient has already understood the 5 point plan and received those handouts in an earlier consultation. If they have not we would always address that first and talk about the additional support here at a later stage.
