Modelling different strategies to prevent coronary heart disease in primary care.
Strategies for prevention of coronary heart disease (CHD) in primary care need to take into account the number of people who require screening, further assessment, intervention and follow-up (i. e, the patient workload generated for the general practitioner) as well as the anticipated reductions in morbidity and mortality.
Risks of CHD for various risk profiles were estimated from equations produced by the Framingham study.
This enabled an estimate of the number of avertable CHD events to be compared against the patient workload implications for the general practitioner when different screening and intervention strategies were used.
