COMmunicating CArdiovascular disease Risk to people with and without DIabetes (COMCARDI)

We are conducting interviews with people from different backgrounds to help understand what visual methods work best for communicating individual disease risk for heart disease and stroke. Lots of different factors such as a person education, ethnicity, first language spoken and whether they have diabetes or not can impact how best to communicate such information, so it is important that we speak to lots of different people to see what works and doesn’t work for them. A person may come across this risk communication when speaking with a healthcare professional about different options to try and lower their risk for disease. If this information is not communicated ineffectively then a person may make decisions that have a negative impact on their health.

This research study is being conducted in the UK and Australia and is recruiting members of the public and healthcare professionals.
