Title Risk models for cardiovascular disease could be misleading, finds study Media name/outlet Pulse Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 21/08/19 Description Current risk prediction models for cardiovascular disease may be misleading at the individual level because of large variations in practice data, a study has found.
Analysis of records from 3.6 million patients across 392 GP practices found considerable variability in the quality of data available.
The study, by a team at University of Manchester, showed that for a QRISK3 predicted score of 10%, an individual patient could have a risk of between 7.2% and 13.7%, depending which practice they came from.
