Title: The importance of knowledge of cardiovascular disease in Małopolska voivodeship

Abstract:

The aims were 1) to assess the relation between knowledge of CVD risk factors and the risk of death from all causes 2) to investigate the potentials of postal survey for assessment of knowledge 3) to assess the relationship between knowledge of risk factors and socio-demographic factors 4) to assess the relationship between knowledge of risk factors and watching TV educational materials.In men with secondary or higher education, low level of knowledge of CVD risk factors was related to 60% higher risk of death. In Małopolska voivodeship, 36% of respondents could not list a single risk factor and 46% of respondents listed incorrectly other characteristics as associated with higher risk of CVD. There were differences in knowledge of risk factors mainly by education and gender. Participants who watched the educational materials were 2-5 times more likely to have knowledge of particular risk factors. The relation was independent of age, gender, education, place of residence, and personal and family history of CVD.Despite the limitations related to the method of screening with a use of postal questionnaire, the results showed that knowledge of CVD risk factors was poor in the adult population of the Małopolska voivodeship. There is a need of intensification of educational campaign. However, it is necessary to differentiate the way ofknowledge transmission to ensure that people with low education would benefit from education programs equally with people with secondary or higher education.
