Delivering women’s heart health awareness information and education sessions in the workplace and the community
Globally, heart disease is a leading killer of women; with ischaemic heart disease now the second leading cause of death for Australian women. Other emerging heart diseases include SCAD, Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy and Peripartum Cardiomyopathy and women experience different signs and symptoms than men for coronary artery disease and heart attacks.
Our aim is to support an authorised health education provider to deliver group sessions aimed at raising women’s awareness of heart health issues and educating them about the prevention of heart disease. The sessions will deliver education, for both women and men, about the gender differences when it comes to the signs and symptoms of heart disease.
