3 Interventions Types

1.  Therapeutic interventions for secondary prevention for patients with known cardiovascular disease (ex. pharmacological interventions)

2.  Identification of high-risk individuals for primary prevention through mass screening or case finding (lipid profiles, BP screening)

3.  General recommendations disseminated throughout the population for primary prevention (ex. dietary and exercise recommendations)

*   Implementation requires a practical systematic approach to prioritizing interventions and allocating resources (interventions vary dramatically in cost, both individually and to society)
