Description:Help on this term

Number of Indigenous regular clients, aged 35 to 74 years and with no known history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 2 years and whose CVD risk was categorised as one of the following:

  • High (greater than 15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Moderate (10-15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Low (less than 10% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years).
Rationale:Help on this term

Early identification of persons at high CVD risk is important for effective prevention and management of the underlying disease.  This is particularly the case for Indigenous Australians because of their poor CVD outcomes.

Since a number of  risk factors contribute to the development of CVD in an accumulative fashion, using two or more risk factors to assess risk has greater predictive power and is more accurate than if considered alone. Basing management decisions using multiple CVD risk factors therefore should  improve health outcomes.

Count of Indigenous regular clients, aged 35 to 74 years and with no known history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 2 years and whose CVD risk was categorised as one of the following:

  • High (greater than 15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Moderate (10-15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Low (less than 10% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years).

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of the Australian Government Department of Health-funded primary health care service which that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators (KPIs). The client should have an active medical record and attended the concerned service at least 3 times in the last 2 years.
