The problem of preventive treatment of people displaying risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (RF CVD) is extremely important. At the same time, despite the proven high efficacy of prevention of CVD, the compliance is still low. In this regard, it is important to develop new approaches to control and improve the profile of RF CVD. The article presents the results of the application of innovative methods of medical and psychological counseling. This methodology combines the most important achievements of three major developing areas of work with the patient: 1) medical psychology (using the methods of motivational counseling, coping prevention, etc.); 2) therapy and cardiology; 3) the use of modern remote digital technologies. The results of the study show the effectiveness of the method of remote medical and psychological counseling to monitor and improve the profile of RF CVD.

Keywords: risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, remote technologies, psychological counseling, motivational counseling, emotional and cognitive factors

Column: Constructive resources of the internet in modern medicine
