Clinical Trial Summary

The County Council of Region Skåne, Sweden, has recently initiated Targeted Health Dialogues in primary care. The prevention program includes health dialogues provided by specially trained personnel, collection of clinical and laboratory data as well as questionnaire data on, e.g., individual health and health behaviors. So far, it enrolls all 40-year old Swedish and foreign-born inhabitants in the county and it will also include all 50- and 60-year old persons within a near future. A research project will be integrated within the program where the collected data will be linked, on the individual level, to national and regional data on hospital admissions, clinical diagnoses from specialist clinics and primary care, causes of death, and prescriptions. The individual linkages will also include population data on sociodemographic characteristics, neighborhood of residence and family relations. Blood samples will be collected for analyses of molecular biomarkers. The research project will examine associations between potential predictors and future risk of cardiovascular diseases and other serious diseases, such as cancer, and also whether the effect of the prevention program is modified by these potential predictors. The effect of the intervention will be examined, and whether the protocol needs to be modified in order to develop more precise and personalized medicine.


Clinical Trial Description

The County Council of Region Skåne, the third most populous region in Sweden with 1.4 million inhabitants, has recently initiated Targeted Health Dialogues in primary care with the ultimate goal to improve cardiovascular health in the entire population in Skåne. Targeted health dialogues have previously been proven to improve health behaviors and risk factors and decrease the incidence of cardiovascular disease and mortality. The prevention program includes, in addition to the health dialogues provided by specially trained personnel, collection of clinical and laboratory data (e.g. blood pressure, BMI, waist hip ratio, lipids, fasting blood glucose) as well as detailed questionnaire data on, e.g., individual health and symptoms, family history, diet, physical activity, alcohol and smoking. So far, it enrolls all 40-year old Swedish and foreign-born inhabitants in the county and it will also include all 50- and 60-year old persons within a near future. The County Council and the Ethical Review Board have granted permission to integrate a research project within the program where collected data will be linked, at the individual level, to national and regional data on hospital admissions, clinical diagnoses from specialist clinics and primary care, causes of death, and prescriptions. The individual linkages will also include population data on sociodemographic characteristics, neighborhood of residence and family relations. In addition to the collection and linkages of these data, blood samples will be collected for analyses of molecular biomarkers. The research project will allow for examining associations between a number of potential predictors and future risk of cardiovascular disease and other serious diseases, such as cancer, and also whether the effect of the prevention program is modified by these potential predictors. The effect of the intervention will be examined and whether the protocol needs to be modified in order to develop more precise and personalized medicine. ;
