Official Title: Connection Between GP's Estimation of Cardiovascular Risk and Theoretical Calculation in France

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate connection between GP's estimation of cardiovascular risk and theoretical calculation (according to guidelines and validated scales (such as risk score profile in the Framingham Heart study or the SCORE risk estimation)) [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To estimate the number of cardiovascular risk patients, that have not been identified [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ]
  • To characterize those patients according to their theoretical cardiovascular risk (high, medium, low) [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ]
  • to reveal GP's estimation of cardiovascular risk is especially driven by LDL [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ]
