Now that I’ve assessed absolute risk, how do I manage it?

Answer

The NVDPA Guideline for the Management of Absolute Cardiovascular Disease Risk provides the recommended assessment pathway, interventions, targets and follow-up.  It incorporates the recommendations from the assessment guidelines and consolidates recommendations for lifestyle and drug therapy for cholesterol and blood pressure lowering into a single guideline.
