 Project title:“A Trans-european research project on selective prevention actions against cardio-metabolic diseases 

 

Acronym: “SPIMEU


Type of action: HP-PJ, 3rd Health Programme
Proposal number: SEP-210199902
Project duration: May 2015 to April 2018.
Project coordinator: NIVEL: Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research, The Netherlands
Partners: NIVEL: Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research, The Netherlands, Julius Center: The Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care, The Netherlands, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark, Charles University, Czech Republic, University of Crete, Greece

The SPIMEU is a Trans-european research project with the aim to contribute to the reduction of cardio-metabolic diseases in the EU member states. This will be pursued by establishing the feasibility of implementing selective prevention actions in five EU member states representing various health systems.

Activities:

The SPIMEU project contains 8 work packages (WP) comprising:

• A systematic collection of information on characteristics, incl. success and failure factors, of existing selective prevention programs for cardio-metabolic diseases in all 28 EU member states. The information will be collected from national experts. Selective prevention programs targets those at higher-than average risk of cardio-metabolic diseases; individuals are identified by the magnitude and nature of risk factors to which they are exposed (WP4)

• A systematic literature review on existing knowledge and evidence regarding determinants of uptake and compliance with selective prevention programs (WP5)

• A survey among health care professionals and among the general population in 5 EU member states on the acceptability of selective prevention actions and feasibility of an innovative implementation strategy of selective prevention (WP6)

• Based on results from WP 4-6 and on the Dutch guideline Prevention Consultation: Cardio-metabolic Risk (PC CMR) a tailored selective prevention program is designed. The program can be tailored to the country-specific context in 5 EU member states taking into account the national health care systems, the level of primary care orientation and the level of gatekeeping (WP7)

• The tailored selective prevention program is tested in a feasibility study. The study is carried out in 5 EU member states including up to 10 primary care practices per country and a random sample of 20 eligible patients attending each practice (WP8)

• Work package 1-3 comprises specific project coordination, dissemination and evaluation activities
