Description:Help on this termNumber of Indigenous regular clients with no known cardiovascular disease (CVD), aged 35 to 74 years, with information available to calculate their absolute CVD risk.
Rationale:Help on this termAssessment of absolute CVD risk based on multiple risk factors is more accurate than that based on individual risk factors due to the cumulative nature of risk effects. In view of this additive predictive power, basing management decisions using this approach should improve CVD outcomes.
