The guidelines incorporate and builds on the previous NVDPA Guidelines for the assessment of absolute cardiovascular disease risk (2009) and consolidates a number of other evidence-based guidelines related to primary prevention of CVD.
Absolute risk is the numerical probability of a cardiovascular event occurring within a five-year period. It reflects a person’s overall risk of CVD, as opposed to the traditional method that considers various risk factors, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure, in isolation.
The guidelines make recommendations for assessing and managing absolute CVD risk in adults aged over 45 years (35 years for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander adults) who are without known CVD.
Special sections providing advice on preventing CVD for those with diabetes and chronic kidney disease are included where relevant.
This guideline is endorsed by the RACGP.
This guideline is published by the Stroke Foundation.
