Description:Help on this term

Proportion of Indigenous regular clients with no known cardiovascular disease (CVD), aged 35 to 74, with information available to calculate their absolute CVD risk.

Rationale:Help on this term

Assessment 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.

Computation description:Help on this term

Proportion of Indigenous regular clients without known CVD, aged 35 to 74, who have had all of the following information recorded within the previous 24 months:

  • tobacco smoking
  • diabetes status
  • systolic blood pressure
  • total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol levels
  • age
  • sex.

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an Australian Government Department of Health-funded primary health-care service (that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators) who has an active medical record; that is, a client who has attended the Department of Health-funded primary health-care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

Operationalisation of tobacco smoking status, sex and age:

Where an Indigenous regular client’s tobacco smoking status and/or sex does not have an assessment date assigned within the Patient Information Record System (PIRS), tobacco smoking status and/or sex as recorded in the PIRS should be treated as current (i.e. as having been updated within the previous 24 months).

Age is to be derived from date of birth.
