CHAMP - Overview
CHAMP (Cardiovascular Health Awareness and Management Program) was founded on three principles:
CHAMP programs are community based and as such are reliant on intersectoral collaboration and multiple partnerships. The principles of awareness, detection and skills are woven throughout the fabric of all CHAMP Programs. The goal of detecting uncontrolled risk factors for vascular disease and working with patients (and their healthcare providers) to control and manage the risk factors is paramount. Each CHAMP Program that has been implemented to date is unique, it has been translated for the community in which the program is working (please see program summary for further details).
