Coronary Heart Disease (CHD)
Research and Evaluation
In Ireland and Internationally cardiovascular disease is a particular health problem among men. The ‘FARMERS HAVE HEARTS’ programme was developed to address this issue. It is a multidisciplinary project providing free cardiovascular health-screening to rural men in County Roscommon. It aims to create an awareness of cardiovascular disease by focusing on the importance of prevention and the promotion of heart health. It identifies clients with risk factors that contribute to cardiovascular ill-health and encourages them to engage in positive health behaviours. The aim of the report is to provide an evaluation of data collected during the Farmers Have Hearts Project to facilitate decision making in terms of future projects. A database of all individuals that attended the project was set up to record key information about those attending the project at their initial and recall visit to the project. Data for 2007 was extracted from the database and was subsequently analysed to obtain an overview of the impact of the project.
