Description:Help on this term

Number of Indigenous regular clients with no known cardiovascular disease (CVD), aged 35 to 74, who had 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

Number of Indigenous regular clients without known CVD, aged 35 to 74, who 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.

Presented as percentage.

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 Clinical Information System (CIS), tobacco smoking status and/or sex as recorded in the CIS 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.
