In a nutshell: This community-based randomised controlled trial gave screening, risk assessment and lifestyle counselling over a five-year period. The incidence of ischaemic heart disease in the intervention group was compared to that of the control group, who did not receive screening. Secondary outcome measures were stroke, combined events (ischaemic heart disease, stroke, or both), and mortality.
