Creating a healthier, better connected Gippsland.

Heart Foundation – Prediction in Practice

Join the Heart Foundation Chair, Professor Garry Jennings, and an expert panel as they showcase the new Australian CVD risk guideline and calculator in clinical practice.

The new 2023 Australian Guideline for assessing and managing cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk and risk calculator provide the latest evidence, practical advice and tools for CVD risk assessment and management in primary care.

The Aus CVD Risk Calculator is the first dedicated Australian CVD risk calculator, incorporating a risk equation uniquely modified and recalibrated for the Australian population and the Australian health system. Using the new Aus CVD Risk Calculator in practice is a simple and effective way of providing more accurate risk assessment and comprehensive heart health care for patients.

Prediction in practice will illustrate how to effectively use the Aus CVD Risk Calculator in primary care through case-based demonstrations of new features such as reclassification factors and risk communication tools.

One hour of live, case-based presentations will be followed by an extended 30-minute live audience Q&A with opportunities to pre-submit questions. Take part in this interactive webinar to hear from our expert panel on topics such as:

– Key updates and features of the new guideline and calculator, including how the calculator was developed and modified.

– Live demonstration of the Aus CVD Risk Calculator, exploring new variables and how they contribute to more accurate risk assessment, risk categories and built-in communication tools.

– Live demonstration of the diabetes specific equation and application of reclassification factors focusing on coronary artery calcium scores, highlighting key practice points and management considerations.
