Intervention for middle – aged adults with high levels of cardiovascular risk in primary care (BBL-GP)

 
Themes: Intervention
 
The aim of this project is to compare an online risk reduction intervention to reduce risk of cognitive decline with a lifestyle modification in obese middle-aged adults in primary care. BBL-GP will evaluate and translate BBL to the primary care setting. Within primary care, a key population group for targeting with multi-domain risk reduction interventions are obese, middle-aged adults. Obesity in mid-life increases the risk of cognitive decline and doubles the risk of late-life dementia. BBL-GP engages participants in goal setting and behaviour change processes with the aim of reducing their overall risk profile for dementia.
