CVD is Canada’s number one public health problem.
Risk factors (unhealthy eating, inactivity), as well as obesity, diabetes and hypertension are increasing.
Gaps between what we know and what we do exist in primary and secondary prevention as well as in treatment.
The health care system lacks integration – access is limited with significant disparities.
Health human resources are deficient.
Care delivery models have been relatively stagnant.
Canada lacks a surveillance system for CVD.
Steven Fletcher,MP, introduced a private members bill calling for chronic disease strategies: cancer, heart and mental health (May 2005)
2005 federal budget included CVD specific resources

Apply CDM model to many aspects of ‘acute’ care
Facilitated patient transitions depending on care needs
Address unique cardiovascular needs of Aboriginal/indigenous people:
Primary health care reform.
Research: foster development and application of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit controlled databases
Integrated primary health care, respectful of traditional knowledge, synergy with other CDs
Human resources: development of Aboriginal health service providers, improve cultural competency of non-Aboriginal
