ASSERTIVE CARE: A RANDOMISED TRIAL TO REDUCE CARDIOVASCULAR RISK FOR PEOPLE WITH SEVERE MENTAL ILLNESS
Grant number: 1141344 | Funding period: 2018 - 2023
The physical health of people with severe mental illness is at crisis point. People die 15-20 years earlier than the general population from cardiovascular diseases that are preventable. Treatments do exist but routine identification is not happening and people with severe mental illness are missing out. Our assertive care intervention will identify, assess, treat, and follow up to reduce cardiovascular risk in severe mental illness and improve health outcomes.
