The 2016 European Guidelines for cardiovascular disease prevention have been published. These evidence-based guidelines also focus on work-related stress. Avoiding excessive stress is important for people who have cardiovascular diseases or several disease risk factors. The Guidelines are based on the research of the IPD-Work Consortium, which has followed the incidence of chronic diseases among more than 600.000 workers in Europe and the US. Professor Mika Kivimäki has led the work of the IPD-Work Consortium from FIOH.
