Description:Number of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 35 years and over, are not recorded as having cardiovascular disease (CVD) and who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 2 years.
Rationale:Rates of CVD are 30% higher among Indigenous Australians than among non-Indigenous Australians. Multiple risk factors contribute to CVD, most of which are preventable. An assessment of CVD risk based on multiple risk factors is more accurate than an assessment of individual risk factors due to the cumulative effect of risk factors that may be additive or synergistic. Given that an absolute risk assessment provides a more accurate assessment of risk than individual risk factors, it is reasonable to expect that basing management decisions on this assessment will improve outcomes.
