Impact of personalised cardiovascular risk estimates on physical activity


Informing a person of their risk of developing a disease might be suffiicient impetus to change that person's lifestyle.

This study looked to determine if a personalised 10-year cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk estimate could increase physical activity and other risk reduction behaviours in adults at high risk of CVD.

It was found that provision of such a risk estimate did not appear to increase physical activity over a one-month period.
