ABSTRACT
The article reports on recommendations to prevent the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) released by the Joint British Societies (JBS3). JBS3 expressed concern that short term estimates tend to neglect long term consequences of modifiable risk factors including hypertension and hyperlipidaemia, as well as overlook the risk in young people and women. It provides information on an online interactive risk calculator released by JBS3 to help communicate longer term CVD risk of patients.
