Objective: To reduce cardiovascular risk after preeclampsia, we investigated the effect of framing, the perceived probability and its interaction, on the willingness to modify behavior. Methods: Participants scored their willingness to modify behavior on two cases with different probabilities of developing cardiovascular disease. Both cases were either presented as chance of health or risk of disease. Results: 165 questionnaires were analyzed. ANOVA revealed a significant effect of probability, non-significant effect of framing and a non-significant interaction between probability and framing. Conclusion: Perceived probability influences willingness to modify behavior to reduce cardiovascular risk after preeclampsia; framing and the interaction was not of influence.
