JARAMILLO G, Nicolás  and  JARAMILLO G, Carlos J. Innovative education strategy in prevention of cardiovascular risk factors thanks to an alliance between state programs and university initiative. Rev. Colom. Cardiol. [online]. 2009, vol.16, n.1, pp.19-28. ISSN 0120-5633.

Failure in traditional strategies based on guidelines and educational management through lectures in health units is evident in different studies in particular in those of EUROASPIRE. Therefore, there is a need for creating new effective tactics for the change of non-healthy life-styles in subjects and communities and lower the prevalence of modifiable risk factors for atherosclerosis and for lowering the incidence of cardiovascular events. We present an experience that even though does not measure the impact on these aspects, was well received by the community and involved innovative aspects. The possibility to unite efforts between politics and state resources with university academic media was shown. Usefulness of interdisciplinary task between different academic disciplines and audiovisual media as well as a massive amusement- education strategy was proven and it appears to offer great possibilities as a modern and efficient didactis in the search of changes towards healthy lifestyles.

Keywords : prevention; cardiovascular risk factors; educational strategy; alliance.
