Great 8

The Great 8 is a visual-based tool created to improve communications around cardiovascular health between health professionals and patients, especially patients with low health literacy and limited English proficiency.

This deceptively simple document is meant to be used in conversations with patients. It can be used to discuss cardiovascular disease related risks and actions taken to reduce risks. It can also be used to determine gaps in patient knowledge, and for self-management goal setting.

Some health care settings may wish to add these links to their electronic health record libraries for easy access in languages needed. Others may prefer to have printed copies available.
