Know your numbers program
Know your numbers: developed to raise community awareness and detection of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes (in NSW and QLD). Know your numbers promotes the importance of regular blood pressure and type 2 diabetes risk assessment checks through opportunistic health checks in pharmacy and other community settings such as community health centres, YMCA branches and Rotary clubs throughout Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
We first piloted Know your numbers in Victoria in 2007 and since then more than 100,000 blood pressure checks have been performed in the community.
