Cardio Metabolic Risk Reduction
Patients with Metabolic Syndrome, Diabetes, Hypertension and Heart Disease are at the highest risk of a cardiac event such as a heart attack or stroke.
For patients with cardiac risk factors Copeman Healthcare’s Cardio Metabolic Risk Reduction service offers an opportunity to identify and manage risks through therapeutic lifestyle change, coaching, appropriate treatment, health monitoring and ongoing education – before a cardiac event takes place. Patients are stratified on the basis of risk using careful calculations and lab work. Depending upon the patient’s level of risk they are referred to the appropriate resource where a personalized reduction pathway (or plan) is developed. They are then monitored over the next 6 months while their care team helps stabilize their condition and manage down their risk factors. Patients are directed into different tracks with different protocols depending upon their level of risk.
In addition to a physician, all tracks receive care from exercise medicine specialists and dietitians. Where needed, care may also be provided by counsellors, physiotherapists and visiting cardiologists. Ongoing monitoring, education and yearly assessments are made for all clients enrolled in Cardio Metabolic Risk Reduction.
