- Action plans for each risk factor – five Lifescripts based on the original lifestyle prescriptions which contain more detailed advice than the 'healthy lifestyle action plan':
- Lifescripts flipchart (PDF 3189 KB large file) – a flipchart for use by health practitioners which incorporates information on all five risk factors, the 5As process and the stages of change concept to guide health practitioners through lifestyle risk factor consultations with patients.
